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.
