Christine Williams

Founder, Outlook Law

 

Christine V. Williams is an adjunct law professor on government contracting at Seattle University School of Law’s Alaska Campus, as well as an adjunct master’s instructor on government contracting and the 8(a) Program at Alaska Pacific University.

She concentrates her practice on Government Contracting from counseling on qualifications and administration to disputes and companies in crisis. She is often involved in sensitive internal investigations and frequently interacts with Government agencies when a company faces a tough situation.

She represents clients in defending against federal investigations, including investigations/reports by the Office of the Inspector General, the Department of Justice, and the GAO. Despite having a national practice, as a born and raised Alaskan, she understands unique challenges that may be faced by Alaska and Tribal companies as well as other businesses when it comes to Government Contracting on a national basis.

Christine’s government contracts work involves complex litigation against the government and/or subcontractors, administration of government contracts, initiating and defending against bid protests, and dispute resolution. She is widely recognized for her expertise in government contracting and speaks nationally several times a year on the subject.

Christine also counsels companies on the procurement and administration of government contracts across all agencies. She has especially deep experience in the SBA and Section 8(a) Programs. Prior to Outlook Law, Christine was vice president and general council for a large Alaska Native Regional Corporation. She was also partner with Davis Wright Tremaine, Perkins Coie, and an attorney at Patton Boggs.

At all firms, Christine practiced with the government contracting and/or construction groups. This breadth and depth of experience has served her clients well, including her Alaska Native Corporation clients, who perform on government contracts throughout the U.S. and globally for a variety of agencies.

Christine is the past president of the Anchorage Association of Women Lawyers and continues to serve on that board. She was appointed by the Alaska Supreme Court to serve on the Court’s Fairness, Diversity, and Equality Committee. Christine is Co-Chair of the Ethics Compliance Section of the Alaska Bar Association.
