Rebecca E. Pearson


Becky Pearson focuses on government contracts law. She assists clients in government contract litigation; contract award protests before the Government Accountability Office and federal courts; administrative claims before agency boards of contract appeals; representation before the Department of Justice and federal courts on civil matters involving government contractors; and civil litigation in federal courts involving government prime contractors and subcontractors. Becky also counsels clients on matters involving contracts including defective pricing and cost allowance questions, teaming agreements, legal and regulatory compliance and ethics, and small business issues. She has significant experience with due diligence in connection with the merger and acquisition of government contractors, as well as post-transaction matters such as novations.

Becky's extensive experience as an Air Force attorney in federal litigation and client counseling, and in interfacing with other federal agencies, provides her with an invaluable "insider's" perspective and proven skills to render timely and effective assistance to clients in a wide variety of government contracts matters.

Representative Clients

As a member of the firm's government contracts group, Becky represents a broad range of large and small clients involved in government contracts, including a major defense contractor and a large foodservice distributor.

Significant Matters

Becky has prosecuted and defended bid protests before government agencies, the Court of Federal Claims, the GAO, and Federal District Court. She has handled several matters that required sensitive negotiation or close coordination with counsel from Defense Supply Center Philadelphia.


Becky is a member of the editorial board for the American Bar Association's Public Contract Law Journal (May 1996 to present).
