Associate General Counsel (Litigation)

The Associate General Counsel (Litigation) is directly responsible for all litigation matters under the cognizance of the General Counsel. These matters primarily include Government contract law, environmental law, and civilian personnel law. This Associate General Counsel supervises and manages the Litigation Office, serves as the Navy's Chief Trial Attorney, establishes policies and procedures for the conduct of litigation throughout OGC and provides training opportunities for OGC attorneys in litigation matters.

The Litigation Office is responsible for representing the Navy in significant cases. Approximately 35 attorneys are organized into trial teams, each with a Team Chief and two to five trial attorneys. Litigation Office attorneys are involved in litigation involving Federal procurement law, civilian personnel law, environmental law, and a variety of special litigation matters. Because of the nature of the work, Litigation Office attorneys travel frequently. Navy litigation attorneys usually appear before administrative tribunals, such as the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals, and assist both Department of Justice and U.S. Attorney lawyers in representing the Navy in Federal courts.
