Morrison & Foerster's Dan Chudd and Jim Tucker will guide participants through a bid protest from soup to nuts. They will discuss such critical topics as the timeliness traps awaiting the unwary, protective orders, and stays of award and contract performance. They will also walk participants through a typical bid protest from the debriefing and protest letter, through requests for dismissal, document production, comments and supplemental protests, to corrective action and GAO's written decision.

Participants will come away with a solid understanding of what bid protests are, concrete tips for litigating them, and suggestions for determining whether to file one in the first place. The intended audience for this presentation includes inside counsel and executives of government contractors, junior protest attorneys, agency counsel and acquisition personnel, and anyone interested in gaining a working knowledge of the Federal bid protest regime.

Daniel E. ChuddDan Chudd
Morrison &  Foerster

Daniel Chudd is a government contracts attorney with significant experience in government contracts litigation and dispute resolution and avoidance. Dan’s interest in government contracts was sparked during his clerkship with Judge Mary Ellen Coster Williams of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. That experience, combined with his in-depth industry knowledge, has made Dan an effective advocate for his clients. In addition, a secondment with a major defense contractor gave Dan valuable insight into the everyday challenges facing government contractors. He draws upon these experiences to develop creative and strategically sound approaches to the myriad issues that his clients face.

Litigation Experience

One of Dan’s favorite aspects of government contracts litigation is the variety of different disputes and forums in which he has been able to practice. Dan routinely represents clients in bid protests before the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. He also represents clients in qui tam False Claims Act matters at the district court and appellate levels. Dan has also appeared before federal and state courts, administrative bodies, and the Civilian and Armed Services Boards of Contract Appeals. The subjects of these disputes have ranged from contract claims and termination disputes with a government customer to contractor and subcontractor disputes.

Dan is admitted to practice in the District of Columbia and the state of Virginia and before the United States Courts of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the Fourth Circuit, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, and the United States Court of Federal Claims.

Dan also holds an active security clearance and has experience with Special Access Programs.
