Andrew E. Shipley

Perkins Coie LLP

Washington, DC, USA

As chair of Perkins Coie’s Government Contracts practice, Andrew Shipley focuses on government contract litigation and counseling and commercial litigation. He litigates in state and federal courts across the country, as well as before various government Boards of Appeal and administrative agencies, including GAO and ODRA. He regularly advises clients on claims, contracts, regulatory and data rights matters. Prior to his return to private practice, Andrew managed an in-house litigation/bid protest group for a FORTUNE 100, multinational government contractor.

Recent successful representations include a bid protest for Intelsat of the award of a $450 million U.S. Navy contract and a precedent-setting argument on behalf of Harris challenging a $335 million IDIQ award from the FBI. He also successfully defended an USAF award to Boeing for the maintenance of nuclear hardened-aircraft. Andrew’s clients range from traditional and nontraditional defense contractors in aerospace, defense, technology and construction to consumer corporations, financial and health services providers pursuing opportunities to conduct business with the federal government.

While he was in-house, Andrew co-founded and co-chaired a Litigation Forum focused exclusively on the needs of in-house counsel. He also served on the Board of Directors for the National Capital Region chapter of the American Corporate Counsel Association.

Andrew speaks and writes extensively on litigating contract claims and bid protests, protecting contractor IP rights, alternative dispute resolution and setting litigation reserves. Andrew won the highly prestigious Burton Award for Distinguished Legal Writing in 2014 for an article in the ABA’s flagship Litigation journal describing a novel legal theory for removing state court actions that he successfully developed and implemented for Northrop Grumman Corporation. He has been consistently recognized as a Washington D.C. Super Lawyer for his government contracts practice. He serves as an advisor to the ABA’s Federal Practice Task Force, working with judges and lawyers to improve the practice of law in federal courts. Andrew also serves on the Federal Bar Association’s Subcommittee on Government Contracts.

Andrew graduated magna cum laude from the University of Maryland with a B.S. in Journalism, and earned his J.D., cum laude from Harvard Law School.
