Attorney Awards


Jonathan S. Aronie is the Practice Group Leader in the Government Contracts, Investigations & International Trade Practice Group and former Managing Partner of the Washington, D.C. office . Jonathan counsels and represents large and small clients in some of the country's largest and most prominent classified and unclassified Government contracts matters, including bid protests, claims, self-disclosures, internal investigations, DOJ investigations, and False Claims Act Investigations.

Areas of Practice

Jonathan’s experience includes litigating under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act, developing and implementing corporate compliance programs, conducting internal investigations (proactive and defensive), and providing advice on the FAR Mandatory Disclosure Rule as well as a variety of federal regulatory and statutory matters, including those relating to the Multiple Award Schedule Program. He frequently represents clients before the Department of Justice, the Government Accountability Office, the General Services Administration, and other defense and civilian agencies. Additionally, Jonathan is cleared at the highest levels (TS/SCI) and counsels and defends clients in classified matters.

Jonathan has authored more than 75 articles and co-authored what is regarded by many as the leading treatise on the GSA Multiple Award Schedule Program, published by Thomson West. He also is a regular speaker at national and international forums and CLE programs. He is a member of the Public Contracts section of the ABA, and served on the ABA Task Force charged with drafting formal guidance regarding the FAR Mandatory Disclosure Rule.

Jonathan's significant matters include:

•Protest of Air Force award of $15 billion Combat Search & Rescue (CSAR) aircraft to the Boeing Company
•Defense of Navy award of $1.2 billion Broad Area Maritime Surveillance (BAMS) contract to Northrop Grumman against GAO protest

•Defense of Fortune 100 defense contractor in $300 million False Claims Act law suit pursued by Department of Justice
•Defense of multiple GSA Schedule IT contractors in False Claim Act lawsuit brought by a competitor whistleblower

As part of Jonathan's internal investigation practice, he was appointed in 2013 by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana as the federal monitor over the New Orleans Police Department responsible for reviewing, assessing, and reporting publicly on the NOPD's compliance with a far reaching Consent Decree. He previously served as the Deputy Independent Monitor over the Metropolitan Police Department, a position created as a result of an agreement between the United States Department of Justice and the District of Columbia.
