Bringing Value to Our Clients
Doing business with the government can be profitable and rewarding. With increasing oversight, however, it can also pose a significant risk to the continuing viability of any commercial enterprise. Whether setting up a government contracts or public procurement compliance program, negotiating the terms and conditions of a government contract, subcontract, or other related agreement, or representing a company in bid protests, government audits, investigations, suspension/debarment proceedings, or litigation, the lawyers of Alston & Bird’s Government Contracts Group can help your company navigate the numerous obligations shouldered by government contractors. We also recognize that very few important matters fall entirely within one industry or specialty. Our lawyers routinely team with our colleagues in other practices, like construction, white collar, health care, finance, international trade, corporate, mergers & acquisitions, labor & employment, and litigation & trial practice, to ensure that every client receives relevant, practical, and meaningful legal advice from our top-flight lawyers.
Our government contracts lawyers are some of the most respected practitioners in the field. We have been ranked in Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business in Government Contracts, Ethisphere Institute’s “Attorneys Who Matter” in Government Contract Compliance, and various Best Lawyers and Super Lawyers rankings, and are honored as contributing authors, editorial board members, and speakers for a wide range of government contracts publications and conferences, including the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics and the Association of Corporate Counsel. Among our team are former assistant U.S. attorneys and DOJ trial counsel. In addition, attorneys in our practice experienced first-hand the fast-paced and dynamic world of in-house legal counsel and understand the need to provide meaningful, timely, and practical real-world legal advice designed to support and grow your business.
