Mr. Anderson is a member of the Firm’s Construction and Government Contracts practice groups. David’s practice is concentrated in construction law, government contracts, and contract damages. He advises clients on contract problems such as project delays, lost productivity, design issues, terminations, and damages and also on contract formation issues and bid protests. David litigates contract cases in arbitration and state and federal courts. He also serves as an expert on federal government contract disputes, particularly on damages, costs, and pricing issues.
Since entering private practice in 1997, David has worked almost exclusively in the areas of construction and government contracts. In his construction practice, David has successfully litigated a large number of complex claims for public owners, contractors, subcontractors, architects, and insurers. He has helped both public owners and contractors cope with problem projects.

In his government’s contract’s practice, David has successfully litigated government contract claims, bid protests, advised on government contracting issues, and served as an expert witness for both the Federal Government and contractors. As a government contract’s expert, he has written reports and/or testified on false claims, contractor damages, pricing methods, and government accounting issues that have enabled sophisticated clients such as the Army, the Air Force, Harris Corp., Aerojet Corp. and Fluor Corp. to successfully resolve disputes ranging in value from $18 million to $1.6 billion.
