Joshuah Turner Associate



Joshuah Turner is an experienced government contracts law attorney, advising U.S. and international large and small companies on a broad spectrum of transactional, litigation, and regulatory compliance matters that arise when doing business with federal and state governments. He routinely counsels government contractors at the prime and subcontractor levels on contract formation matters such as the preparation of responsive proposals, competitive range determinations, and contract negotiations. He also advises clients on a myriad of disputes that may arise during contract performance resulting from delays, condensed periods of performance, terminations, changes in contract terms or specifications, and the like. In addition, Joshuah is skilled at negotiating requests for equitable adjustment, to bring contract disputes to resolution pre-litigation.

Joshuah also has significant government contract litigation experience, litigating bid protests at state level before the District of Columbia Contract Appeals Board, and the federal level before the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, and individual executive agencies. His litigation experience also includes representing clients before the Boards of Contract Appeals, litigating Contract Disputes Act (CDA) claims arising during contract performance, and extends to representing clients defending against False Claims Act (FCA) allegations.

Additionally, Joshuah has transactional experience advising on the unique complexities associated with government contractor mergers and acquisitions relating to novations, facility security clearance implications, required representations, and small business size implications. Joshuah also has a wealth of regulatory compliance experience, conducting internal compliance investigations and creating full-scale compliance programs. He also routinely advises on compliance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS), as well as the Uniform Guidance, funding opportunity announcements, agency-specific policies, and applicable statutes as they relate to federal, state, and local grants.
