Professional ▪ Competent ▪ Experienced

Founding partner John Reidy brings nearly 30 years of experience to our bid assistance practice. He scrutinizes the bid process for conflicts and resolves bidding disputes. He helps contractors with a variety of issues, including:

  • Reviewing your bid package to make sure it conforms to standards articulated in the RFP
  • Ensuring your bid is timely and includes all necessary documents and information
  • Reviewing denied bids and the reasons stated by the awarding authorities' panel
  • Contesting denied bids if the bid package was in conformity with the stated bid requirements
  • Challenging bid awards to other contractors by inspecting the winning bid for its timeliness, compliance with the terms of the bid process, environmental issues, lack of adherence to material specifications, and other factors that indicate the contract was awarded improperly
  • Submitting a protest if the winning bid was noncompliant and requesting our client's bid be reconsidered

Through careful study of relevant laws and regulations governing the bid process, our lawyers can confirm whether the bid process was fair, whether parties were in violation, and what legal remedies are available.

Our legal knowledge and experience have led us to successful outcomes in litigation. In some cases, we have proved that the original contractor was not in compliance with the bidding process or requirements of the contract, and courts found that our clients should have been awarded the contract.
