Allison has advocated extensively for clients in government contracts litigation before the Boards of Contract Appeals (BCA) and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, as well as in bid protests before the Government Accountability Office (GAO). In these processes, she places clients in the best position for successful outcomes by covering all bases and ensuring she’s diligently safeguarding their rights under specific contract clauses. Outside of dispute resolution, Allison also advises government contractors regarding transactional matters, with particular experience in SBA compliance and size certification issues.

With a comprehensive background in contract drafting and negotiations, Allison has developed an extensive library of custom-form construction contracts tailored for differing jurisdictional requirements, client needs and asset types. Her outstanding attention to detail and speed-reading abilities enable her to quickly zero in on potentially problematic language when reviewing contracts.

As a certified construction risk and insurance specialist, Allison always looks to mitigate liability by advising clients on indemnification provisions and state-specific statutes, as well as insurance provisions and requirements that affect contractual risk transfer.

Taking a congenial and professional approach to all matters, Allison works collaboratively with all parties whenever possible and looks for creative methods to resolve differences.

The recipient of numerous awards for her legal work, Allison Geewax represents clients in government contract matters, complex commercial contract drafting and negotiation and construction risk management. In her multifaceted practice, Allison serves corporations operating in a variety of industries – large and small government contractors, Fortune 500 investment banks, international hospitality companies, commercial real estate developers and owners, among others. She brings a broad and deep knowledge base to guide her clients through all phases of contracting processes, construction projects and legal procedures.
