Government and internal investigations related to government contracts present unique challenges, due to the complex regulatory regimes for doing business with the US government. We leverage our firm’s market-leading Government Contracts, White Collar Defense and Investigations and False Claims Act practices to help our clients navigate high-stakes inquiries while protecting their valued customer relationships.
Our team of highly skilled lawyers is led by a former General Counsel of the Department of Defense and the Central Intelligence Agency and a former manager of the in-house litigation/bid protest group for a multinational government contractor. Drawing on our many years of experience in government, in-house and private practice, we combine technical know-how with creative lawyering to help clients navigate the complex world of federal procurement and other government transactions. We counsel a diverse range of clients on issues arising in the pursuit or performance of government contracts, including contract negotiations, intellectual property rights, commercial item status, flow down clauses and GSA Schedule compliance. We offer pre-eminent experience on key national security areas affecting government contractors, such as cybersecurity; foreign ownership, control and influence; and export and defense trade controls.
We work closely with our transactional colleagues on M&A matters involving government contractors. Relying on our strong litigation background, clients confidently look to us to protect their interests in enforcement actions, investigations, federal court litigation, board of contract appeals litigation, bid protests and other contested proceedings. Our pragmatic approach to problem solving includes a focus on alternative dispute resolution and other proactive means for resolving disputes quickly and efficiently. As counselors to our clients and advocates for them, we take the time to learn and understand their businesses to ensure that our legal advice aligns with their goals.
