Join attorneys W. Barron A. Avery and Katherine John as they lay out key dispute resolution techniques and strategies in confronting federal government claims against contractors and terminations for default issued on federal government contracts.

Mr. Avery and Ms. John explain why contractors are seeing an increase in government claims and default terminations, the context in which such claims and terminations arise, and how contractors can avoid and minimize the risk of such claims and terminations. They also lay out the procedural mechanisms that result in claims and terminations, and how contractors should respond when adverse action is taken against the contractor. Mr. Avery and Ms. John conclude with an explanation of how contractors can minimize and even eliminate liability arising from a government claim and default terminations.
