Government Contracting

Government Contracting Practices

Government Contractors face unique challenges and risks. Obtaining legal counsel at the beginning of the procurement process is critical to identify potential issues and avoid costly disputes. Those doing business directed or indirectly with the United States government must be aware of and prepared to deal with the myriad of complex rules, regulations and protocols that are unique to government contracting, and navigating the process with an experienced advisor can make the difference in whether the outcome is successful.

Government Contracting Practices:

  • Compliance
  • Subcontracts
  • International Procurement
  • Bid Protests
  • Contract Performance Issues
  • Export Control
  • False Claims Act
  • Appeals

Our attorneys assist clients in navigating the complex landscape of regulations and issues that government contractors face on a daily basis, including ensuring compliance with the requirements concerning corporate structure and governance, compliance with the bid requirements of a solicitation, drafting subcontracts with appropriate “flow down” provisions, international procurement, bid protests, contract performance issues,  Foreign Corrupt Practices Act compliance, export control requirements under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (“ITAR”),  avoiding and defending False Claims Act claims, asserting claims with the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals, the Board of Contract Appeals, or Federal Claims Court, drafting requests for equitable adjustments, and handling all aspects of the government’s termination or modification of any awarded contract.

In addition to counseling companies with respect to domestic government contracts, our attorneys have unique experience assisting foreign and domestic companies participating in United States government projects located outside of the United States and represent and counsel companies in international litigation and arbitration disputes in a variety of forums.  Please feel free to contact T.J.
