Cohen Seglias Pallas Greenhall & Furman PC, which represents government contractors, corporate clients, midsize privately held businesses and construction companies, has added a former acquisition law specialist from the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps as a partner in the government contracting practice in its Philadelphia office.
Timothy Furin joins the firm after serving 22 years in the Army, where he acted as trial team chief and also defended the Army and the U.S. Department of Defense against bid protests before the U.S. Government Accountability Office and the U.S. Court Of Federal Claims. He has also litigated contract appeals before the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals.
“The Federal Contracting Practice Group at Cohen Seglias is unique in two regards,” Furin told Law360 by email. “First, the majority of our practice focuses on issues that arise during federal construction projects. This is a pretty specialized area of the law, and the depth and breadth of knowledge within the group is absolutely amazing. Next, this group is unique because the majority of attorneys practicing on our team have worked for the federal government, defending the government in the exact type of cases that our clients are now bringing. This gives us a distinct advantage because we know the tactics that the government is going to use and how they will try to defend against our client’s cases.”
