About Our Presenter ...
Daniel Kelly
McCarter English

Mr. Kelly brings over thirty years of experience to the firm’s government contracts group. His practice combines both counseling and acting as an advocate on behalf of clients doing business in the government marketplace.  Mr. Kelly has knowledge of the government contracting process both on a federal and state level, and the specific laws, regulations, contract clauses and dispute resolution mechanisms in this specialized area. He provides advice and guidance to clients who are in the government supply chain, either as prime contractors, subcontractors or vendors. He reviews government solicitations with clients, prepares proposals, and negotiates teaming arrangements and subcontracts with other suppliers. He helps clients build and enhance their compliance programs. He assists clients in protecting their intellectual property and proprietary information concerning their businesses when doing business with the government. He advocates for clients who wrongfully were passed over for a contract award. He prepares claims arising under government contracts as a result of change orders, delays, and terminations for default or convenience. Mr. Kelly’s practice extends to a broad spectrum of industries and federal and state authorities for whom they supply research, products and services including, Medicare and Medicaid audit and investigation service providers; commercial software developers who modify their software for military applications; professional services providers for federal and state-sponsored hurricane relief efforts; raw materials and component suppliers to large military prime contractors; and biomedical and pharma research facilities working under SBIRs, CRADAs, and grants for health agencies.

Mr. Kelly most recently represented Agiltron, Inc. and two of its wholly owned subsidiaries in successfully negotiating and seeing its client through the successful termination of an Administrative Agreement with the United States Air Force Suspension and Debarment Official, ending July 26, 2016, removing a suspension barring Agiltron from obtaining federal government contracts and grants.

Mr. Kelly serves on the Board of Directors for NCMA Boston (National Contract Management Association) and NDIA New England (National Defense Industrial Association), and is a frequent speaker at NCMA and NDIA events.

Mr. Kelly serves as an adjunct member of the faculty at Suffolk University Law School where he has taught Government Contracts.
