Oles Morrison Rinker & Baker, LLP, one of the West Coast’s most respected law firms, is pleased to announce that attorney David Yang has joined the firm as a partner.

Yang’s practice focuses on government contracts where he advises clients on all critical aspects of their business, whether the issues involve compliance, intellectual property, prime-subcontractor matters, cost accounting, claims, bid protests, false claims act or other disputes.

Yang has litigated on behalf of contractors before a diverse range of courts, boards and arbitration panels. He focuses on bid protests, where he has successfully protested and defended billions of dollars’ worth of some of the largest defense and civilian procurements in recent history before the U.S. Government Accountability Office and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, where he served as a law clerk early on in his career.  In addition to his expansive protest work, Yang has recovered millions of dollars in Contract Disputes Act claims before the boards of contract appeals and also routinely defends contractors in False Claims Act cases in federal courts nationwide.  Yang has strategically obtained dismissal of several multimillion-dollar FCA lawsuits through the effective and efficient use of pre-trial motions.

Prior to joining Oles Morrison, Yang was a partner at an AmLaw 100 firm in Washington, D.C. He also served as a law clerk for the Honorable Mary Ellen Coster Williams at the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.

Yang received his law degree from George Washington University Law School, with high honers, and his bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington

The addition of David Yang expands Oles Morrison’s already skilled government contracts team, which, in addition to Yang, is led by Adam LaskyHoward Roth and Jim Nagle.
