Garvey Schubert Barer is pleased to share that our client Foss Maritime received an award from the Defense Logistics Agency recognizing Foss’ contributions to the Hurricane Sandy relief effort that kicked off one year ago. We are proud of both Foss Maritime and John Tirpak, who accepted the award on behalf of Foss Maritime. Mr. Tirpak is currently the Senior Vice President of Foss Global, and he spent a number of years working for Saltchuk Resources-affiliated maritime companies out of our Washington, D.C. office. Garvey Schubert Barer’s Government Contracts group was honored to assist Foss with an “undefinitized” contract for the do-it-yesterday disaster response.
On the anniversary of Hurricane Sandy’s landing on the east coast, we remember the scale of the hurricane’s impact on the region, including affecting our own New York office, as well as the companies and people who rose to the occasion to help out all those in need.
