The Government Contracts Team regularly represents clients in their dealings with governments at all levels, including local, state and foreign governments. We have experience in handling matters involving the DOD, all military services, and many of the federal civilian agencies, including NASA, FAA, Interior, DOE, HHS, GSA and Transportation, as well as state and city government agencies.
Our lawyers in offices throughout the country have assisted clients in numerous government contract areas, including proposal preparation and negotiations, bid protests, internal audits and investigations, corporate compliance programs, procurement integrity issues, adequacy of internal controls, cost allowability and allocability and cost accounting standards, Buy American and Trade Agreements Acts issues, voluntary disclosures, government audits and investigations, licensing and data rights, defective pricing and false claims allegations, debarment and suspension, claims for equitable adjustment, prime-subcontractor disputes, teaming and joint ventures, international procurement issues, Congressional investigations and hearings, terminations for convenience and default, qui tam claims and national security issues and small and disadvantaged business qualifications and set-asides.
We have been involved in many of the leading cases in government contract matters before the Agency Boards of Contract Appeals and federal and state courts. We also have substantial experience in alternative dispute resolution processes, including mediation, arbitration and mini-trials.
