In Law360, White & Case Commercial Litigation counsel Scott Lerner is featured as a 2023 Government Contracts Rising Star.
Lerner discusses some of the biggest cases of his career, and his proudest moment as an attorney, saying, "I feel very fortunate that I come to work every day and work for a roster of clients that I genuinely respect and admire. Many of them are on the front lines with our nation's servicemen and women defending our country's interests abroad and at home," he says.
On the future of government contracts law, Lerner notes, "Firms are increasingly seeing government contracting as an area of growth opportunity in the legal industryadding that White & Case has added big names in that space to its roster in recent years.
He anticipates plenty of activity ahead, given President Biden's US$1 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. "Invariably, those investments and the federal money that is flowing from those investments will certainly, at some point, lead to disputes involving government contractors, " Lerner said. "So I don't know how the industry is going to look in ten years, but I feel bullish on government contracting specifically."
