Government Contracts

We have experience representing clients, both private entities and government agencies, at the intersection of business, law, and politics.  As more companies compete for government contracts at the state and local level, companies rely upon legal counsel to help navigate through the complex laws governing procurements, implementation, and performance of public contracts.  We have experience in all aspects of a procurement from the “birth to the death” of a contract – from helping to craft and shape a procurement, to providing advice and counsel on responding to a procurement, filing and defending against bid protests, and representing clients in disputes that arise during the performance of a contract.  We have represented clients asserting and defending bid protests to challenge intended contract awards at the state and local government levels in contracts ranging from millions to billions of dollars.
