Fred Antoun maintains
law offices in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania and Washington, DC. His practice concentrates on
federal government procurement law, primarily involving printing and information dissemination contracts. He has
assisted clients in all phases
of contract formation and administration, including strategic team
arrangements, joint ventures, contract interpretation, bid preparation, award,
bid protests, contract modifications,
equitable adjustments, disputes, audits, and debarments.
Representation of several web-based companies led to an interest in internet publishing, on-line information access, and print ecommerce. Fred has designed a successful print-related website, and is active in industry efforts to set print ecommerce standards and definitions.
Fred has appeared before the Pennsylvania County, Superior, and Supreme Courts, the U.S. District Court, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. He has successfully pursued bid protests to the General Accounting Office and appeals to Boards of Contract Appeals for print, CD-ROM, and data management companies. He is also admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States.
Before attending law school, Fred worked for, and later managed a weekly newspaper and commercial print shop, where he became familiar with all phases of the print production process. Six years as an Assistant District Attorney gave him extensive trial experience. Before concentrating in the area of government contracts, his practice included representation of numerous municipal clients, contract negotiation, public and private labor negotiations, civil trials and appeals, administrative law, and acquisitions.
Fred is a recognized expert on government printing and information dissemination issues, and has given testimony on the subjects before Congressional Committees. He is the author of articles published in numerous trade magazines, association newsletters, and on the web.
In addition to his private practice, Fred currently serves as Counsel to Printing Industries of America (PIA) Government Affairs Division for Government Printing and Information.
Away from the office, Fred enjoys hiking, relaxing at the farm, and building computers.
