About Us

OUR MISSION

A “smart” law and consulting firm, the firm infuses experience, efficiency, and quality into its flexible and commoditized service offerings for government contractors. The firm’s standard is to be a teammate, not a tax, so that it can simultaneously increase the quality and frequency of its clients’ business transactions.

An alternative to traditional law and consulting firms, the firm engages pools of attorneys and consultants who operate over a virtual platform in order to reduce our clients’ bottom line. In doing so, we have replaced the common “firm-first” mantra for a “client-first” strategy of providing reliability, accountability, and a depth of service offerings on a rationalized basis so that our clients can comfortably intergrate out services into their business operations and strategies.

OUR PROMISE

We fuse experience, process efficiencies and credentials into our commodotized and flexibly-priced service offerings to increase the quality and frequency of our clients business transactions.

JERRY ALFONSO MILES, ESQ.

BIOGRAPHY

Jerry Alfonso Miles assists companies in complying with federal acquisition regulations, mitigating proposal risks, protesting bids, defending against government investigations, completing mergers and acquisitions, responding to government auditors, and resolving prime and subcontractor disputes.

After working with the American Society of International Law (ASIL), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and a downtown law firm, Mr. Miles spent four years as corporate counsel for Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR), working on matters at the forefront of international and government contract law. Mr. Miles then worked at a large, regional law firm in that firm’s government contracting, international and construction practices.

That experience gives him a special perspective that brings added value to clients in the following areas: small business contracting, Department of Defense (“DoD”) and civilian contracting, technology contracting, construction contracting, and international contracting. He has considerable experience in transactional matters, including negotiating nondisclosure agreements (“NDA”), teaming agreements, subcontract terms, and facilitating mergers and acquisitions. Mr. Miles also assists clients with bid protests, requests for equitable adjust-ments; prime and subcontract claims; audit, compliance and investigation responses; and, litigation strategies.

As a past Chair of the Federal Bar Association’s Government Contracts Section and an active member of the international procurement bar, Mr. ­­Miles regularly speaks on international procurement matters. He also involved in several charitable and philanthropic associations, including the American Heart Associations’ Pulse Lawyers Have Heart and McKissack’s ACE Mentor Program.

Mr. Miles received his undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia, where he focused on international relations with an emphasis on the integration of European Union and Middle Eastern geopolitics. He received his juris doctor from William and Mary School of Law. When not looking for the next classic car show, Mr. Miles can be found “training” for his next 10k road race on the National Mall with his “AmStaff” Maci.
