Government Contracts & Grants

We help our clients navigate complex federal and state procurements and in-depth relationships with government agencies.

Our Government Contracts team understands the federal government's procurement process. For a federal or state government contractor, or for a business that has decided to enter into the government market, the accurate identification and mitigation of the risks arising from the procurement process is a necessity. In addition to contract formation matters, our lawyers specialize in administrative and contract law spanning the full range of federal, state, and local government contract formation and administration.

Our team assists clients with every stage of the government procurement process, beginning with an analysis of the risks associated with entering the market and continuing through the issues arising during the solicitation, award, performance, and completion of government contracts. Transactions in this market are affected by a mix of commercial and uniquely federal rules and regulations, many of which can vary substantially based on several factors, including the type of product or service being acquired, the acquiring agency, and the characteristics of the contractor itself. We help clients understand, respond to, and, if necessary, litigate issues and disputes arising in government contracts formation and administration.
