The Williams Mullen Government Contracts Industry Service Group (Government Contracts ISG) delivers the critical services a company needs to enter, grow and defend its interests in the heavily regulated government contracting market. Led by a nucleus of government contracts-focused attorneys who have years of first-hand experience working for the Justice and Defense Departments and defense contractors, the Government Contracts ISG translates deep knowledge of how the federal government operates into actionable advice for clients.

Armed with a firm grasp of our clients’ business, their government and commercial market drivers, and how government requirements may impact corporate and commercial functions, we advise our government contractor clients on their business concerns and litigation matters. To do so, we call upon our government contracts-savvy colleagues with corporate, financial, export and import trade regulation, tax, intellectual property, labor and employment, executive compensation and employee benefits, information security, real estate, litigation, and white collar experience, as well as firm attorneys who are experienced in economic development.

The Government Contracts ISG has assisted contractors, subcontractors and third-party stakeholders across numerous industry sectors such as aerospace, defense, homeland security, IT, information security, maritime, medical, public health, scientific, services, manufacturing and construction with often thorny issues that arise during each stage of the acquisition lifecycle. Our practice encompasses government regulatory and business counseling, strategic advice, negotiations, protests, claims, third-party litigation, False Claims Act defense, suspension and debarment defense, investigations and compliance training.

Our lawyers have represented clients in matters involving most of the federal military, homeland security and civilian departments and many federal agencies, including GSA, NASA and USAID. In addition, we have advised foreign companies on establishing operations in the United States independently and through acquisition as well as domestic companies expanding to overseas markets.

Our seasoned trial and appellate attorneys appear before the GAO, the Boards of Contract Appeal, federal administrative tribunals, the Court of Federal Claims, the Federal Circuit, various Federal District Courts and Federal Courts of Appeal and state courts. We also address matters through arbitration and mediation.
