Nixon Peabody's Government Contracts team works closely with companies of all sizes to help them take advantage of the opportunities associated with federal, state, and local government contracts, while assuring that they also understand the risks, obligations, and larger business issues associated with them. Our lawyers have handled multibillion-dollar transactions and litigation with the U.S., state, and municipal governments, and have also helped small and mid-size companies enter the federal procurement marketplace. We have represented clients in negotiation, counseling, litigation, and other proceedings involving contract formation and negotiation, protests and claims, investigations and qui tam litigation, mergers and acquisitions, and specialty advice & counseling (e.g., CAS compliance).

  • Internal investigations
  • International transactions
  • Labor, employment, safety, and wage/hour compliance
  • Drafting and negotiating contracts

We also have substantial experience assisting companies that provide—or seek to provide—products and services to the U.S. Departments of Defense and Homeland Security. We have helped clients take advantage of opportunities afforded by the Homeland Security and SAFETY Acts, and aided them in developing policies and procedures to ensure compliance with the U.S.A. Patriot Act.

Our lawyers have analyzed, developed, negotiated and, when necessary, litigated claims against the government. We are skilled at protecting our clients' intellectual property and proprietary information in this context.
