Joshua Rodman naturally identifies with his clients; he’s been one. Prior to practicing law, Joshua worked for a major government contractor as a contract negotiator. This first-hand experience, coupled with his MBA in Finance, uniquely positions him as a go-to trusted advisor for government contractor clients operating at the local, state, federal or international level.

Joshua regularly counsels government contractor clients in matters involving:

  • negotiating, securing and performing government prime contracts, subcontracts and sub-tier subcontracts
  • Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) and agency-specific clause analysis and compliance
  • bid protests
  • claims
  • teaming agreements
  • joint-venture agreements and mentor-protégé agreements
  • International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Export Administration Regulations (EAR) compliance
  • DCAA audits
  • personnel and facility security clearances
  • internal investigations and voluntary disclosures to various government agencies
  • The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS)
  • due diligence
  • mergers and acquisitions
  • corporate governance
  • corporate restructuring

Joshua often draws from his previous experience negotiating US and international government contracts for both products and services (including prime contracts, subcontracts, direct commercial sale (DCS) contracts, manufacturing license agreements and technical assistance agreements (TAAs)). Having regularly worked with contracting officers, DCAA and DCMA representatives and internal program teams, Joshua collaborates effectively with client teams ranging from high-level executives to employees on the ground interfacing with the customer.
