Alston & Bird provides clients with a team that includes both transactional and government contracts lawyers who have built their practice on understanding the regulatory hurdles associated with buying and selling companies in the aerospace, defense, and government services sector.
When a company explores acquiring, selling, or creating a strategic alliance with an industry competitor or partner, our team provides counsel on structure and negotiations, working closely with financial advisors and your executive team to advise on due diligence, contract compliance, security clearance transfers, and compensation requirements, as well as the unique representations, warranties, and indemnities that surface in these transactions. We have vast experience with public-private partnership negotiations and aid in ensuring compliance with requirements specific to federal contracts. Our team has also advised some of the best-known companies on their sales to private equity firms that are actively investing in government contract businesses.
Alston & Bird’s corporate team draws on resources across the firm to protect IP and privacy interests, overcome antitrust concerns, navigate international trade regulations, comply with environmental standards, ensure a beneficial tax and compensation structure, and if needed, raise capital or seek financing to achieve your goals. These resources are available coast to coast to take up these and other issues as they arise during a complex transaction in an industry that receives much oversight.
