Arnold & Porter's Government Contracts Practice Once Again Named a Law360 'Practice Group of the Year'
Arnold & Porter’s Government Contracts practice was named to the 2021 edition of Law360’s “Practice Groups of the Year” list. The annual ranking honors law firms behind the legal work that “resonated throughout the legal industry in the past year.” This marks the sixth time the Government Contracts group has been named as a Law360 “Practice Group of the Year.”
“This recognition showcases the high-quality of our multidisciplinary Government Contracts practice, and our deep bench of talented and dedicated associates, and as well the trust and opportunities provided by our diverse client base,” said Kara Daniels, who chairs the firm’s Government Contracts & National Security practice.
Law360 recognized the firm's “successes in challenges to billions of dollars in contentious contract awards” and its high-profile work representing significant government contractors across various industries.
The group also was lauded for its work “representing contractors in matters such as False Claims Acts cases, merger and acquisition deals, and compliance and cost and pricing issues, which are often resolved behind closed doors,” according to the profile.
The Government Contracts practice also continued its work representing “health care and life sciences companies in work related to COVID-19, including ‘nontraditional’ contractors who don't typically work with the government,” Law360 said.
Law360 also highlighted the additions to the Government Contracts practice over the past year, including partner James Kim in Washington, DC, and partner Michael Barnicle in Chicago.
As a full-service Government Contracts Practice, the team advises its government contract clients on the unique and often complex legal and compliance issues they confront, from the procurement process through performance, to specialized transactional requirements involved when acquiring or selling in this space, to cyber and national security requirements including export controls and sanctions laws.
