Doing business with federal agencies can be profitable. However, federal procurement is heavily regulated, which makes government contracting different from commercial contracting and gives rise to numerous unique legal issues. Our attorneys regularly work with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (the FAR), the Defense Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARs), and other agency regulatory supplements. Our government contracts lawyers provide the advice, documentation, and dispute resolution services needed to navigate the regulations and enable you to maximize the value of your contracts.

  • Transportation (maritime, trucking and aviation)
  • Aerospace and defense
  • Biotechnology and medical research
  • Engineering and construction
  • Environmental remediation
  • Professional services
  • Information technology and communications

Operating from offices in Washington, D.C., Seattle, and Portland, our government contracts lawyers collectively have well over 100 years of government contracting experience. Many previously served in federal agencies or on congressional committees with agency oversight. We know how federal agencies think and how to work with them. Using this knowledge, we deliver cost-effective legal services that minimize your risk while helping achieve your business goals.
