David C. Hammond


Government contractors rely on David Hammond’s over 30 years of experience advising government contractors on a wide range of issues, especially in connection with overseas contingency operations. Described as a “go to guy” for battlefield contractors, David has solved numerous complex and politically sensitive disputes arising in foreign countries, has saved billions of dollars in government contracts at risk, and does not back down when faced with corrupt foreign government officials. He is known as a team builder who comes up with creative and novel strategies to achieve his clients’ objectives.

David represents domestic and foreign government contractors on matters before all three branches of the federal government, many of which require crisis management. He has successfully represented defense, security, intelligence, and aerospace companies in matters involving awards and protests, internal investigations, voluntary and mandatory disclosures, congressional investigations and hearings, false claims, suspension and debarment, and prime-subcontractor disputes.  

David was the founding chair of the Government and Legal Affairs Committee of the International Stability Operations Association. He has litigated government contract disputes and other procurement matters before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, federal district courts, the Government Accountability Office, the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals, the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals, the Small Business Administration, and state administrative agencies.
