Marshall J. Doke Super Lawyers 2017

Marshall Doke was described as "the Nation's top government contract lawyer" with "an unrivaled tandem of trial skills and government contract mastery" by Lawdragon, a leading lawyer-ranking publication. He was also ranked by Chambers USA as a "top ranked" government contracts attorney. Issues he routinely confronts on behalf of his clients include defective pricing, claims pricing, FCPA (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act) compliance, Federal Acquisition Regulation, the Government Accountability Office, counterfeit parts, the Truth in Negotiations Act and sovereign immunity, but these are a fraction of what Marshall sees on a frequent basis.

Additional areas include:

  • Procurement protests
  • Breach of contract
  • Suspension and debarment
  • Contract terminations
  • Fraud
  • Cost accounting standards
  • Medicare and Medicaid claims
  • Buy American Act
  • False Claims Act

With a practice devoted to federal, state and local government contracts, Marshall understands the rules of competition, bid protests, contract interpretation and disputes. C-suite executives and general counsels of Fortune 500 corporations, foreign corporations and smaller companies seek out Marshall to help with governance issues, codes of conduct and ethics matters. Marshall is also an experienced arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association.

One reason clients chose Marshall over government contract attorneys in Washington, D.C. is his proprietary and comprehensive database, the Government Contracts Digest, which has nearly 60,000 areas of law at his fingertips. This alone saves clients significant time and money – he gets them the best answer in a matter of minutes, not days or weeks.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
