Each year, federal, state and local governments collectively spend trillions of dollars in procuring goods, services, and construction. Our government is the largest consumer in the United States, if not the world. Not surprisingly, such large scale procurement is controlled by a vast, ever-changing body of regulations and decisional law.
Our attorneys are experienced in all levels of federal and state procurement. We represent clients from proposal submission through claims and dispute resolution, and at every critical step in between. We provide clients with advice on compliance with contract requirements and regulatory issues to avoid disputes and minimize clients' liability exposure. When unavoidable disputes arise, the firm's skilled litigators have successfully represented clients before the Boards of Contract Appeals, federal and state courts, administrative agencies and arbitration forums.
And because the current political climate constantly changes the way the government does business, we stay on top of current and proposed legislative and regulatory actions affecting procurement and alert our clients of the impact of such changes on their business operations.
Our clients range from small disadvantaged businesses to multinational corporations in a range of industries, including defense and homeland security, business consulting, construction, manufacturing, logistics, energy, healthcare and high technology. And since clients' government contracts issues are often intertwined with issues in other areas of law, the Government Contracts Group routinely coordinates with other firm practice groups to address our clients' government contract needs.
