Government Contracting

BHGR’s government contracting attorneys have a wide range of experience representing contractors in all phases of government contracting with federal, state, regional, and local authorities, from proposal drafting through the successful conclusion of projects.

We advise clients with regard to federal, state, and local procurement regulations and interpretation of the terms and conditions of solicitations. We also assist in the negotiation and contents of teaming agreements, subcontracts, joint venture agreements, and license terms and conditions. When claims and dispute arise, we represent our clients in all aspects of the preparation, presentation, and negotiation of appropriate and comprehensive change orders requests, claims, and terminations for convenience proposals.  

Whether a successful awardee or disappointed bidder, all companies must also understand the realties of the bid protest process to defend their own awards or to advocate their rights to full and open competition as a protestor. BHGR attorneys have expertise in pre-and post-award bid protests, and representing protestors and awardees alike with respect to issues including solicitation defects, sole source awards, organizational conflicts of interest, task- and delivery-order contracting, schedule contracting, untimely bids, agency discussions, past performance, responsibility issues, fraud issues, technical evaluations, cost and pricing issues, best-value determinations, cost-technical tradeoffs, and all types of evaluation defects. 

We draw on our expertise in many areas of law, such as construction, insurance coverage, federal Indian law, public entity, real estate, and environmental law, as well as our experienced litigation team, to support our commitment to aggressively represent successful awardees and aggrieved bidders to achieve the best possible results.
