At Mayer Brown, we understand the many opportunities and challenges of contracting with federal, state and local government agencies.
Our Government Contracts practice includes leading members of the government contracts bar with the optimum balance of skills and seniority levels needed in addressing the challenges and problems our clients face. Whether negotiating terms, clearing regulatory hurdles, managing a contract dispute or defending against parallel civil and criminal investigations, we have the leadership and industry focus to help contractors thrive.
Our Government Contracts team also can draw upon the firm's extensive resources to best address our clients' government contract needs. Those resources include lawyers in the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East with experience in a range of relevant industries and areas of law across the country and overseas. For example, the Government Contracts practice functions in close collaboration with Mayer Brown’s Government Relations, Biotech, Health Care and Intellectual Property practices and works with members of those practices as issues involving their experience arise.
The lawyers in our Government Contracts practice have helped clients secure and/or perform contracts with numerous federal, state and local agencies, including, at the federal level, the Department of Defense, Department of Education, Department of Energy, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Justice, Department of the Treasury, Department of Veterans Affairs, Federal Aviation Administration, General Services Administration, Office of Personnel Management and US Postal Service. Our clients include such major contractors as Lockheed Martin, Verizon Communications, Abbott Laboratories, Cap Gemini Ernst & Young, BlueCross BlueShield Plans and several oil companies.
Contracting with the government can introduce special problems that require experienced counsel. We have over 25 years of experience in the sector representing contractors from virtually every industry.
