“Todd is a very responsive and creative bid protest lawyer.” “He is a tireless worker who is extraordinarily creative.” “He is an outstanding lawyer who is very, very bright.”

— Chambers USA 2023

As Co-Leader of the Government Contracts team and a Law360 MVP in Government Contracts law, Todd Canni is entrusted by government contractors to resolve their most important “bet-the-company” government contracts matters and unexpected “crisis” events. He advises contractors throughout the life cycle of a government contract from award through closeout and everything in between, including bid protests, debarment matters, civil False Claims Act investigations, civil investigative demands, government disclosures, complex contract disputes and building and enhancing ethics and compliance programs. Todd is widely known as one of the nation’s preeminent suspension and debarment lawyers and one of only a few debarment lawyers who previously served as a Department of Defense debarring official. Among his accomplishments: in 2022, Todd served as lead trial counsel in successfully challenging a DoD debarment in federal court, thus saving the client’s business – an outcome that contributed to his former firm receiving “Government Contracts Group of Year” honors by Law360. Due to Todd’s nearly two decades of experience in the government contracts and debarment spaces, including as a debarring official and as defense counsel, and his involvement in several dozen administrative agreements involving monitoring, he is well positioned to serve as an Independent Monitor under agency Administrative Agreements. Indeed, Todd authored the chapter on Administrative Agreements set forth in the ABA’s Practitioner’s Guide to Suspension and Debarment. In 2023, Todd was named a Law360 MVP for Government Contracts for his exemplary work in the field.
