Jon Perrone represents government contractors in healthcare, construction, defense, information technology, and services industries. Jon provides representation in both the pre-contract and the contract-administration phases, assisting clients in variety of ways: helping contractors prepare to perform (compliance, corporate structuring, and teaming and joint ventures), identifying and protesting procurement defects and improper award decisions, and litigating claims and disputes (contract modifications, payment obligations, terminations, and CPARs) before administrative agencies and courts.
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. Jon takes pride for his ability to grasp contractor-specific knowledge and operations, regardless of how technical or esoteric.
In the Air Force, Jon earned an associate’s degree in Arabic at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California. He later earned his undergraduate degree in political science at the University of Montana and his juris doctor at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. 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.
When he isn’t busy helping clients battle big-time bureaucracy, fittingly, Jon enjoys travel and foreign affairs and languages, not to mention classic cars, cooking, craft beer, and (dutifully, if not regrettably) rooting for the Seattle Mariners… There’s always next year.
