Ex-Jenner & Block Partner Jumps To Gov’t Contracts Boutique

Nichols Liu, a boutique government contracts firm based in Washington, D.C., has added a long time Jenner & Block LLP attorney as a partner to continue representing clients in bid protests and a range of government contracts matters.


In an interview with Law360 Pulse, Weiss said she wanted to move her practice to Nichols Liu because its platform was focused on providing excellent service to clients and allowed for meaningful engagement with them. “Nichols Liu is doing something very interesting and refreshing within the government contracts marketplace,” Weiss said.

Andy Liu, a name partner at Nichols Liu, told Law360 Pulse in a statement that the firm was looking forward to continuing to expand its capabilities with the addition of attorneys like Weiss.


“We have worked hard to build a platform that features top talent, sophisticated clients, transparent compensation, and a diverse and positive work environment,” Liu said in a statement. “We are happy to be able to attract exceptional lawyers like Carla.”

The team also worked on a range of claims cases at various stages, he said. “I think we have the profile that we want: young, aggressive litigators who solve problems,” Nichols said
