Professional Background

Initially litigated business, government contracts, and commercial claims for a major Century City law firm (clients included financial institutions and prominent Government contractors) before coming to San Diego in-house with a Navy contractor. Completed major construction litigation projects under way, including successful ASBCA trials. Other responsibilities included contracts/claims administration and various regulatory compliance matters. Then resumed private practice in this field.

The Law Offices of Clinton D. Hubbard specializes in Government contract matters with a long background in business litigation. The firm counsels clients on all legal aspects of dealing with the Government. These include solicitations, bids, competitive proposal preparation, teaming agreements, contract interpretation, bid protests, claims, constructive changes, default and convenience terminations, disputes, construction and project claims for equitable adjustments, appeals, Freedom of Information Act, labor standards, small business programs, HUBZone protests, data rights, state & federal False Claims Acts, and cost accounting. We cover the full range of Municipal, State, and Federal Government contract matters.

Business litigation matters reflect the needs of our Government contracts clients and principally involve commercial and contract disputes, unfair trade practices, trade secrets, unfair competition law, and regulatory issues.

This office networks with a range of experts in all aspects of Government contracting, many of which are non-attorneys with prior employment in the agencies or with the contractors doing business with these agencies. They cover a range of fields including contracts, cost accounting, production, and procurement.
