National Security Defense and Intelligence INDUSTRIES

 

Our country's national security rests on a foundation of private enterprises—traditional defense contractors, intelligence community partners, and the vast array of companies that comprise our critical infrastructure. Our clients supply products and services to governmental customers or have operations that are affected by changing security requirements and policies. We help them navigate their relationship with the federal government by counseling on contracts, assisting in the development of regulations, ensuring compliance with complex rules, and advocating in disputes ranging from enforcement actions and federal court litigation to government contracts litigation and bid protests. With extensive experience in senior national security posts across the government, our lawyers have been repeatedly recognized in this specialized field.
