Practice/Industry Group Overview
The Halloran & Sage Government Contracts Practice provides complete counseling, compliance and litigation services to clients who contract with federal, state and local government organizations. We have in-depth understanding of all phases of the contracting process, including bid and proposal preparation, negotiations, protests, contract performance, audits and investigations, contract claims and litigation.
Our attorneys' experience in government contracts spans more than 35 years. One partner served 15 years as a senior legal advisor in the U.S. Department of Defense on regulatory, contracting, procurement and related issues. We maintain professional contacts with program and contracting officials in multiple federal agencies, including the Departments of Commerce, Defense, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Justice and State, as well as the General Services Administration, Small Business Administration, Federal Aviation Administration and Federal Communications Commission.
We routinely represent major contractors regarding Federal Supply Schedule Contracts; leasing of real estate to the federal government; sales of software and information technology products and services; construction, maintenance and operation of federal buildings and military airfields; and bid protests and claims. We represent contractors and grantees in federal and state pricing and compliance audits and in inspector-general investigations. Our practice includes representation of large and small government contractors in false-claim and qui tam disputes and litigation. As part of our legal services, we provide advice to clients on developing compliance programs, reporting mechanisms and other safeguards to avoid violations of law or regulation.
