Work with Dempsey Fontana

Imaginative, bold, fun and passionate. And that’s just for starters. If you’re not those things, you’re not for Dempsey Fontana.
— James Fontana, Managing Parter


Dempsey Fontana is currently seeking an experienced partner-level attorney with more than 10 years of experience in government contracts and related business law.  The ideal candidate possesses significant expertise in legal issues faced by government contractors, and would be interested in helping us grow and potentially assume a leadership position with the firm. More particularly, the candidate should have experience in bid protests, claims, small business set-aside issues, subcontract and teaming arrangements, and related regulatory matters, as well as strong research and writing skills.  Familiarity with M&A and other transactions related to the government business is a plus. We prefer an attorney with portable business focusing on government contracts but will consider other related practices (e.g., labor & employment, IP, M&A).

If interested, please contact Jim Fontana at; phone: 703-880-9172.  

Word of warning: If your application uses the word "penultimate" or "per se" we may not read it.   We pride ourselves on a talented and unique group of attorneys who are passionate about their work and clients, have a good sense of humor and can speak plain English, at least most of the time.
