Jon counsels and represents government contractors in healthcare, construction, manufacturing, defense, information technology and service industries. He specializes in representation in both pre-contract and contract-administration phases. Jon helps contractors prepare to perform, identifying and protesting procurement defects and improper award decisions, and litigating claims and disputes before administrative agencies and courts, such as Civilian Board of Contract Appeals (CBCA), Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. Jon takes pride for his ability to grasp contractor-specific knowledge and operations, regardless of how technical or esoteric, allowing him to provide exceptional counsel to his clients.
At Whitcomb, Selinsky, PC, Jon works with the firm’s government contracting, bid protests, and litigation teams. He helps clients with regulatory compliance and corporate structurings, such as teaming arrangements and joint ventures. He is well-versed in contract modifications, payment obligations, cure notices, terminations, and the Contract Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS).
After being honorably discharged from the U.S. Air Force in 2009, Jon worked for a Canada-based consulting firm on defense and intelligence contracts for the Federal government. There he gained valuable experience in the field of government contracting and traveled extensively to U.S. military installations abroad.
During law school, Jon worked in a clinical program helping Colorado’s low-income and homeless veterans obtain discharge-upgrades and VA disability benefits. He also participated in the school’s criminal defense clinic, helping indigent clients navigate the criminal justice system.
When he isn’t busy helping clients battle big-time bureaucracy, Jon enjoys travel and foreign affairs and languages, not to mention classic cars, cooking, craft beer, and – dutifully, if not regrettably – rooting for the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Mariners - there’s always next year.
Jon has achieved corrective actions from the Federal government related to numerous contract solicitations, both pre- and post-award. Jon has successfully negotiated termination settlements and other claims with various government agencies.
