Representation as lead counsel of Team NO11i, consisting of Robert Wennett, Jonathan Fryd, and Michael Comras, throughout the City of Miami Beach’s procurement phase, including navigating the political and legal landscape. We assisted in developing the strategy for responding to the City’s Request for Proposals (RFPs), preparation for oral presentation before the evaluation committee, and responding to various legal challenges to the process.
