The USDA Forest Service names Brown Law Group as One of Only Three Firms in the Nation to Provide Legal Services for its Employment Litigation

The US Department of Agriculture, Forest Service has named Brown Law Group as one of only three firms in the nation to provide legal services for its employment litigation. The firm was selected to represent the USDA Forest Service in employment-related cases within the state of California that are not part of a class action. Other firms included in the award were Gary Gilbert, LLC, Silver Springs, MD and DeCuir, Clark & Adams, LLP, Baton Rouge, LA.

Brown Law Group, founded by Janice Brown in 2003, is a leading San Diego business litigation firm that specializes in all aspects of employment law and business litigation. Suzanne Roten is an experienced employment lawyer, successfully practicing for over 20 years.

“We’re honored that the USDA Forest Service has recognized Brown Law Group as a worthy partner in the area of employment litigation,” said Brown.  “This is an outstanding opportunity for us to demonstrate our commitment to excellence.”  She noted that the firm has already begun work under this federal contract, defending the Forest Service on claims filed by Forest Service employees with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the federal Merit  Systems Protection Board.  Suzanne Roten, a partner at Brown Law Group, says, “Our first cases have given us a real appreciation for the challenges facing the Forest Service as it manages a workforce of over 33,000 employees nationwide, and we are honored to defend the agency’s employment decisions here in California.”

The total scope of the USDA Forest Service contract for all three firms is $16.5M over a five year period under an Indefinite-Delivery, Indefinite-Quantity contract (IDIQ) with the exact amount allocated to each firm dependent on the number of cases assigned with their region.
