Government entities at all levels purchase millions of dollars worth of goods and services a year.  Becoming a government vendor can be very lucrative, but it is vitally important to understand the complexities of governmental contracting. This includes everything from responding to the procurements, to filing a bid protest if necessary. We have helped our clients to obtain a wide range of governmental contracts. Whether it be a service contract, like providing a governmental entity with continuing architectural services, or a good base service, such as providing workforce housing, our government team has been involved in almost every sort of procurement imaginable.

Our Attorneys have an in depth knowledge and experience in all aspects of drafting, responding to, negotiating, lobbying, and litigation of procurement matters. We routinely help to counsel clients in responding invitations for bids, design-build contracts, change orders, requests for proposals, payment and performance bond claims, and bid disputes. The legal aspects of procurements are increasingly more complicated as a result of state law, local codes, and even county requirements. Further, most responses are on a very finite time frame and the time to protest is even shorter.

We pride ourselves on helping our clients through the procurement process, and the success we have achieved for our clients.
