The Virginia government contractor attorneys of MartinWren, P.C. have experience handling high-stakes litigation involving government contractors, their competitors, and their employees. The United States government and state governments have increased the use of government contracting opportunities for private businesses, and that increased involvement of private entities in the public realm has given rise to a litany of legal disputes. We have successfully represented clients through a number of such legal disputes, including through jury trials, and we are aware of the inherent difficulties when trying to resolve complicated disputes between government contractors.
Perhaps the biggest advantage MartinWren, P.C. offers to government contracting clients and other parties is our ability to provide effective representation in a cost-efficient manner. Our attorneys’ hourly rates are more competitive than D.C. rates, and our relatively close distance to DC and Northern Virginia makes our involvement in these cases possible. This is especially true with the growing use of electronic filing in the federal and state courts, and we have been able to seamlessly represent our clients in these locations.
Our lawyers have specific experience handling breach of contract claims arising out of a variety of contracts, including sales and asset purchase agreements, teaming agreements, employment contracts, equity incentive agreements, and others. We have also handled tort-based claims related to accounting disputes, business conspiracy counts, fraud claims, unfair competition, piercing the corporate veil claims, and conversion claims.
Our representation is not just limited to companies. We have also represented employees entangled between warring government contractors due to their desire to seek alternative employment despite a variety of employment and intellectual property contracts, such as noncompetes, non-solicitations, non-piracy, non-disclosure, or a host of other confidentiality agreements. Depending on the circumstances, we may be able to assist government contractor employees and contractors in injury claims.
We firmly believe that most cases should settle, and we have experience presenting matters at mediation, negotiations, and through arbitration to reach a favorable resolution outside of court. Should that not succeed, however, we are prepared to represent our clients in extensive and multi-day jury trials. We are familiar with managing electronically stored evidence in document-intensive cases to find the documents and evidence that will support your claims or defenses, and our trial lawyers will utilize the latest trial technology to present your case to a judge or jury.
We are willing to consider alternative fee arrangements, including contingency fees, depending on the type of dispute, the stakes involved, and the matters at hand. We are typically open to such arrangements only when the dispute at hand is seeking monetary relief, or perhaps if the contract or statute at issue provides for an award of attorneys’ fees to the prevailing party. We would be happy to discuss the possibility of such a representation on a case-by-case basis.

Byrne, Jr. at (434) 817-3100 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
