David Metzger

Arnold & Porter LLP

David Metzger is a partner in the law firm of Arnold & Porter, and has been active with the Small Business Innovation Research ("SBIR") Program for over three decades. As Chief of Staff and General Counsel of the Small Business Subcommittee on Energy, Environment, Safety & Research, he made important contributions to early predecessor bills that eventually became the Small Business Innovation Development Act (the "SBIDA"), the Act that first implemented the SBIR Program. David added the important limitation that Phase I proposals could not exceed 25 pages, saving SBIR applicants time and resources. During his four years at the Small Business Administration, he monitored passage of the SBIDA, along with others in the Office of the Chief Counsel for Advocacy, where he served as Director of Innovation and Procurement Policy. While in private practice, Mr. Metzger provided commentary assistance to SBA in publishing the first binding SBIR Policy Directive in 2002, and has made over 150 presentations on the SBIR Program and SBIR Data Rights, including at national SBIR conferences, Navy Opportunity Forums, and the Navy Technical Assistance Program (TAP). His clients include over 100 small and high-tech businesses that rely on him for advice on SBIR policy, eligibility, the SBIR preference, intellectual property, data rights, teaming, and general Federal procurement advice. Mr. Metzger serves on the Board of the Small Business Technology Coalition, which is heavily involved in SBIR implementation.
