Contract Requests for Equitable Adjustment, Claims, Disputes (REAs), Termination Settlements, and Appeals

Government-directed changes are part of doing business with federal and state governments, and you must be prepared with a prompt and comprehensive response.  

We help you respond to change orders (and recognize constructive changes when they occur) and termination notices to protect your rights to receive fair compensation and contractual schedule relief, if needed. Perform due diligence to ensure good faith, well-documented claims. Navigate the claims and disputes appeal process. Avoid penalties. 

We litigate denied claims at the prime contract and subcontract level in every forum, and have deep experience before the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals (ASBCA), the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals (CBCA), and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. 

Contract terminations present unique changes. We break down obligations and guide you through the steps. 

The rules governing contract changes and terminations are complex. We steer you forward.
