Damien is a partner in the firm’s Government Contracts & Public Procurement practice. He represents clients in all facets of government contracts transactions, as well as regulatory counseling, subcontract and teaming agreement negotiations, contract disputes, size protests, and bid protests.

Damien has been recognized as a leading Government Contracts lawyer by various publications. Chambers USA explains that he “is a strong choice for advising government contractors on M&A transactions,” and sources say “his biggest strength is that he is very commercial, thinking about both the legal and business side of things.” National Law Journal found that federal lawmakers turn to him when they “need expert advice about small-business policy.”

Damien regularly serves as lead counsel in high-stakes litigation, including pre- and post-award protests at the GAO, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, and state tribunals, as well as in size protests and appeals.

He has also played a significant role in dozens of government contracts transactions, representing industry leaders, private equity firms, and entrepreneurs.

Damien holds an active security clearance. He serves as Co-Chair of the ABA Public Contract Law Section Mergers and Acquisitions Committee and in the leadership of the American Bar Association Small Business & Other Socioeconomic Programs Committee. Damien has testified about procurement issues before the United States House of Representatives.
