Williams Mullen’s government contracts attorneys provide valuable advice to clients concerning the government contract law of nearly every state and advise clients with regard to state and local protest issues in many states and municipalities. Our team has handled government contract matters in Puerto Rico and numerous states including Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin. We have also worked on behalf of companies offering goods and services through a variety of government purchasing cooperatives, such as WSCA.
Much of our effort on the state and local level is spent asserting, defending, or advising with regard to bid protests. The firm’s attorneys are licensed in 30 states and with offices in North Carolina, Virginia and Washington, D.C., Williams Mullen can handle state and local bid protest matters in those jurisdictions without engaging local counsel.
Our extensive collection of state procurement codes, regulations, and handbooks enables our government contracts attorneys to quickly access the law as it relates to particular issues within a given state. Many states also have a wealth of procurement case law decisions that can be available to support arguments.
Williams Mullen attorneys also serve as national government contracts counsel, calling on our lobbyists or retaining local counsel only when necessary to protect your best interests. This strategy is proven and cost-effective and gives our clients one primary contact for all your government contracting issues. We manage and budget any lobbyists, local attorneys, public relations, or other consultants, if we determine that such resources are needed for any particular matter. This allows companies to focus their attention on selling their products to government clients rather than managing attorneys and other outside resources. This approach also allows companies to engage these extra resources only when necessary and to forego that expense when we collectively determine that it would not be cost-effective or beneficial.
