Government Contracts Group and Attorneys Recognized Again by Chambers and Partners USA
For the twelfth consecutive year, Chambers and Partners USA has recognized Rogers Joseph O’Donnell as one of the premier government contracts law firms in the United States. RJO is proud once again to be the only boutique-sized firm to be ranked among the country’s eight best government contracts firms. Chambers’ ratings, released in May 2016, rate our government contracts practice in “Band 2″ and recognizes five individual RJO attorneys.
Chambers describes our firm as being known for being an “[o]utstanding boutique practice, acting for domestic and international government contractors on all stages of the procurement cycle” and for “[f]requently advis[ing] on complex regulatory issues and government acquisitions, and defend[ing] clients in a wide range of high-profile civil, administrative and criminal litigation matters.” As strengths, it quotes: “They are a very high-class, traditional firm, with some excellent practitioners.”
Chambers ranks founding shareholder Neil O’Donnell as one of only eleven top (“Band 1”) government contracts attorneys in the nation. Chambers describes Mr. O’Donnell as “an eminent member of the government contracts Bar” and states that peers describe him as “a tremendous individual and attorney” who “personifies the manner in which successful government contracts practitioners operate” and is “one of the best speakers I have ever heard.“ Bob Metzger, who heads our Washington office, and Patricia Meagher are also ranked as top government contracts attorneys in Bands 3 and 4, respectively. Chambers describes Bob’s government contracts practice as “highly regarded among the government contracts Bar for his enforcement, litigation and bid protests practice” and notes that he “represents clients in the aerospace and defense, telecom, IT, professional services and electronics sectors, among other industries.” Patricia is regarded by sources as having a “wonderful reputation“ in the field of dispute resolution and government contracts claims, a “good demeanor“ and “incredible intelligence” and as being well known for her Bar activities. Shareholder Aaron Silberman is also cited as an “Other Noted Practitioner.” Chambers recognizes RJO shareholder Jeff Chiow as an “Associate to Watch” (Jeff was elevated to shareholder Jan. 1), describing him as “an up-and-coming associate whose practice includes counseling, bid protests and internal investigations” and quoting one source: “He has always impressed me.”
