Marshall J. Doke , Jr.

Listed in Best Lawyers since 2013

Marshall Doke is ranked by Chambers USA as a "top ranked" government contracts lawyer, and major corporations who hire him to untangle the snare of acronyms, old and new regulations, and compliance risk agree. Issues he routinely confronts on behalf of his clients include defective pricing, claims pricing, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, Federal Acquisition Regulation, the Government Accountability Office, counterfeit parts, the Truth in Negotiations Act and sovereign immunity, but these are a fraction of what Marshall sees on a frequent basis.

Additional areas include:

  • Procurement protests
  • Breach of contract
  • Suspension and debarment
  • Contract terminations
  • Fraud
  • Cost accounting standards
  • Medicare and Medicaid claims
  • Buy American Act
  • False Claims Act

With a practice devoted to federal, state and local government contracts, Marshall understands the rules of competition, bid protests, contract interpretation and disputes. C-suite executives and general counsels of Fortune 500 corporations, foreign corporations and smaller companies seek out Marshall to help with governance issues, codes of conduct and ethics matters. Marshall is also an experienced arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association.

One reason clients chose Marshall over contract lawyers in Washington, D.C. is his proprietary and comprehensive database, the Government Contracts Digest, which has nearly 60,000 areas of law at his fingertips. This alone saves clients significant time and money – he gets them the best answer in a matter of minutes, not days or weeks.
