Attorney Spotlight: Sylvia Yi

April 10, 2017

Sylvia Yi spotlight1. Tell us about your practice.

Government contracts is a multifaceted practice that is intertwined with a number of industries and practice areas, which lends itself to collaboration with other practice groups. It is a constantly changing field, and we have the opportunity litigate, provide compliance advice, and act as subject matter experts in M&A transactions. 

2. How did your previous work at the Public Contracting Institute and at the Department of Homeland Security, Office of the General Counsel prepare you for your associate role at Bass, Berry & Sims?

I have seen government contracts from both the contractor and agency points of view. Public Contracting Institute is a government contractor (and a provider of government contracts training), and I had the opportunity to assist in preparing a successful proposal to a solicitation. At the Department of Homeland Security, I was in the Procurement Law Division where I experienced the full life cycle of a government contract – I commented on draft solicitations, reviewed justification and approvals, and assisted on bid protests. I also had the unique opportunity to attend contracting officer (CO) meetings to better understand the relationship between the CO and the agency customer. I believe experiencing and understanding government contracts from both sides allows me to be an effective advocate for my clients. 

3. Why did you choose to pursue a career in the legal field?

The legal field appreciates creativity within bounds, and that dichotomy keeps me interested. It was a natural choice as someone who enjoys problem solving, and it has turned out to be a rewarding path.
