Law360 Names Daniel Forman a 2020 Government Contracts MVP

Washington—October 9, 2020: Law360 has named partner Daniel R. Forman, co-chair of Crowell & Moring’s Government Contracts Group and member of the firm’s Management Board, a 2020 MVP for government contracts.

Forman was recognized for his role in a number of high-profile, high-dollar bid protests. He led the team that helped lead Amazon Web Services' successful defense against claims of conflicts concerning the $10 billion JEDI deal, which was the subject of significant media and congressional scrutiny. He secured corrective action for Perspecta Enterprise Solutions LLC in the $7.6 billion DEOS cloud procurement, and also was part of the team that led ISS Action's defense of a $249 million contract to provide security and transportation services for U.S. Customs and Border Protection. 

When asked about his beginnings in government contracts law, Forman told Law360 that he was drawn to the work on cutting-edge issues for interesting clients, as well as the social justice components in the field.

"I never thought of government contracting as a tool for progressive policy, but it really can be, when properly utilized," Forman said. "If you think about it, many of the largest companies do business with the government and so, you have an ability through EOs and regulations to really influence the behavior of corporations in a positive social lab."

Forman also advised junior attorneys to learn the ins and outs of their clients’ business, noting, “You really can't represent your clients' interests to the fullest extent unless you understand what it is they're doing.”

This is Forman’s second MVP recognition, having also made the list in 2015.
