Representative Experience

  • Our lawyers have advised clients on COVID-19 pandemic-related issues, including workplace safety obligations, remote work and return-to-office policies, and compliance with and implementation of policies relating to the numerous state, local, and federal laws enacted in response to the pandemic.
  • We represented a major aerospace manufacturer (with multiple facilities in various jurisdictions) in response to allegations and a resultant investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor concerning Service Contract Act/Service Contract Labor Standards compliance issues. The matter was resolved without imposition of penalties or other strict sanctions.
  • We represented a key contractor to the U.S. Department of Justice in connection with an audit of the contractor’s compliance with the Service Contract Act/Service Contract Labor Standards at its facilities in the State of North Carolina. Here again, the matter was resolved without imposition of penalties or other strict sanctions.

  • On behalf of a major defense contractor, we have conducted several internal investigations of “hot line” or other complaints by whistleblowers asserting, inter alia, that the contractor had delivered materials that failed to meet contract specifications, or overcharged the U.S. Government for certain transactions with its subcontractors. We successfully represented this same contractor in mediation proceedings conducted by the DoD IG to resolve certain whistleblower allegations and claims of retaliation in the workplace also made by the employee.
  • We represented a key government contractor technology company in responding to compensation discrimination proposed findings by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs; the OFCCP ultimately closed its audit without requiring any compensation adjustments or back payments.
