The attorneys in Paley Rothman’s government contracts group help clients navigate the bureaucracy of federal procurement and contract management processes, allowing them to maneuver quickly through the evolving government contracts landscape. We are highly experienced in contract negotiations and dispute resolution, regardless of whether the matter at hand is a prime contract, a subcontract, a teaming agreement (CTA or NDA), or an employment issue.
Our record of successful bid protests includes persuading the U.S. Navy to take corrective action that ultimately led to the inclusion of one of our clients as a prime contractor in a hundred million dollar multiple-award contract. We are adept at interpreting and applying federal regulations from the FAR, DFARS, SBA, and DOT, among others, and our attorneys provide guidance on both small and disadvantaged business certifications as well as other preference statuses and set-aside contract issues.
Additionally, we handle mergers, acquisitions, and other corporate transactions for government contracting companies. We take care to keep abreast of important changes to laws and regulations affecting government contractors to ensure that we provide counsel of the highest quality to our clients. We also pay close attention to state and local procurement issues, enabling the firm to provide the same high standard of legal services at all levels of government contracting.
We are well-versed in government data rights to intellectual property and have considerable experience protecting trade secrets and other proprietary information, litigating misappropriation claims, and handling cyber-security issues. We have also successfully defended False Claims Act (FCA) cases and have helped clients respond to audits and investigations by oversight and investigative bodies. In addition to these services, we have handled Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) investigations, and we are able to provide guidance on GSA schedules, contract claims and terminations, suspension/debarment issues, and Organizational Conflicts of Interest (OCI).
