For nearly three decades, Charlotte Rosen has been helping government contractors find business-oriented solutions to legal problems relating to their contracts. By engaging as an “outside general counsel” for clients, she provides efficient service, quick turn-around advice on all kinds of day-to-day contract issues, and solid representation in government audits, litigation and investigations.
Charlotte’s experience spans the entire life-cycle of a government contract. Before contract award, she ensures that all facets of an impending deal, such as teaming relationships; set-asides; pricing and other disclosures; technology licensing; and protection for client data rights and software, best reflect the client’s interests. After award, she helps clients evaluate, prepare, and settle or litigate REAs, disputes and claims before the Boards of Contract Appeals and the Court of Federal Claims.
She has also litigated numerous defensive and offensive bid protests at the agency level and before the Government Accountability Office and the Court of Federal Claims, as well as size protests to Contracting Officers and the SBA. Clients benefit from this experience when evaluating options, possible outcomes, and how best to achieve their business objectives.
Prior to practicing law with major DC area law firms, Charlotte served as an Assistant General Counsel with the Navy Office of the General Counsel. Her clients included Navy contracting officers and the commanding officer of the contracting activity.
