Prime and Subcontractor Litigation and Disputes

Centre attorneys assist clients in assessing and resolving disputes arising under Federal Government Contracts and Subcontracts. Because a subcontractor lacks a direct relationship with the government, the laws and regulations applicable to subcontracts are much less than those applicable to a prime contractor. Prime contractors, however, often attempt to “flow-down” virtually all of the terms of their prime contract. Subcontractors should carefully review proposed subcontracts and attempt to limit flow-down terms to those required by law or otherwise needed to address the government’s right to modify the prime contract.

Centre’s Litigation Attorneys have over 30 years of expertise in successful litigation for prime and subcontractor disputes.
