Ellen Bonner has been hired as of counsel in Holland & Hart LLP’s Colorado Springs office, bringing a unique mix of government contracts and healthcare compliance experience to the firm’s Government Contracts practice.

As a seasoned government contracts and healthcare attorney, Bonner represents clients in a wide variety of government contract matters, litigation, and healthcare. She litigates before the U.S. Government Accountability Office, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals, as well as state district court.

With experience both as government counsel and as general counsel for firms doing business with the government, they have the understanding and perspective to see the issues from the client's point of view and fashion solutions that will satisfy the government.
