The federal government alone purchases almost $100 billion in goods and services from business owners every year. State and municipal government agencies also retain local businesses for projects that span a wide variety of industries, products and services. As a result, government contracting is a uniquely attractive sector for many companies looking to grow their business; however, contracting with the government poses special risks throughout the bidding process and execution of the contract. Organizations must accurately represent themselves to government agencies — and fully comply with government regulations — or face civil, and in some instances, criminal penalties.
The Warner Government Contracting Practice Group counsels clients through every stage of the bidding process and can assist with internal compliance audits to prepare and protect against these risks. We work with clients to identify opportunities and conduct market research so they are better positioned to bid against the competition. When disputes arise, our attorneys are prepared to work with you to resolve the conflict, carry you through a bid dispute, and, when necessary, represent you in the courts or before the requisite boards of review and/or administrative agencies.
