W. Gregory Mott

Of Counsel || Washington D.C.

Public Contracts/Prevailing Wage Experience: Greg Mott provides nationwide guidance to clients on both state and federal prevailing wage law, and advises clients on the now 27 states with state prevailing wage laws. He has developed coverage and compliance matrices, drafted risk assessments, and overseen self-audits for Fortune 100 companies regarding state-to-state compliance requirements. He has participated in adjudicating prevailing wage disputes in 15 states, including Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Ohio, Illinois, Minnesota, New Mexico, and Washington.

Mr. Mott’s in-depth knowledge of prevailing wage laws provides a broad platform for developing and negotiating litigation strategy with regulators. He has obtained written guidance from the U.S. Department of Labor that has proved persuasive to state regulators with respect to job classification, coverage, and enforcement issues, including whether certain installation-side work and/or post-installation, service, and maintenance is covered work subject to each state’s prevailing wage law.

Mr. Mott focuses on obtaining early resolution of these issues in order to prevent and avoid uncertainty and high costs associated with investigations and defending public or private enforcement actions based on alleged non-compliance. Mr. Mott is a valuable, go-to resource for addressing prevailing wage issues and concerns.

Federal Litigation Experience: Mr. Mott’s practice is concentrated in administrative law, labor law, and civil and appellate litigation. He has extensive experience litigating ERISA health and pension benefit issues throughout the federal courts. This includes having successfully defended companies and briefed declaratory and injunctive actions on their behalf against the government and/or private parties in connection with efforts to impose claimed statutory or contractual liabilities.
