Government Contracts Group Joins Barnes & Thornburg's Washington, D.C., Office

WASHINGTON, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Three government contracts attorneys and a senior public policy advisor with federal procurement experience have joined Barnes & Thornburg LLP's Washington, D.C., office, bolstering the firm's capabilities in government procurement, defense programs, and homeland security.

Attorneys Dorn "Bo" McGrath, David Hickey, Will Jack, and senior public policy advisor Joseph Corrigan have joined the firm from Greenberg Traurig LLP's Washington, D.C., office. "We are really excited to welcome Bo, David, Will, and Joe to our Washington, D.C., office," said Karen McGee, managing partner of Barnes & Thornburg's D.C. office. "Their arrival is the latest sign of our continued commitment to grow this office by adding seasoned laterals across strategic areas of focus."

McGrath noted that he and his colleagues were drawn to Barnes & Thornburg because of the firm's efficient and sophisticated methods of offering services to clients who seek greater control over their outside legal costs. He also said that he and his peers are excited about the move as it provides the opportunity to offer additional services of interest to clients in the defense and homeland security industries. 

"Their extensive experience and skill sets are a great complement to the many key services we offer clients, including through our litigation, corporate, intellectual property, and labor and employment practices," said Alan A. Levin, Barnes & Thornburg's managing partner.

McGrath and Hickey are partners, and Will Jack is of counsel in Barnes & Thornburg's Corporate Department; Corrigan is a member of the firm's Governmental Services & Finance Department and Federal Relations Group.
