Bradley partner Aron Beezley was quoted in Law360 on the top six government contract cases during the second half of 2021.
A Court of Federal Claims ruling in July showed that length can make a sole-source contract unreasonable.
Beezley said that prior to the decision, many contractors may not have realized that they could challenge the duration of a sole-source contract as unreasonable.
