Government Contracts

Government contracting is a core industry in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area. Shulman Rogers has the depth of capabilities to offer a full spectrum of legal services to our contractor clients of all sizes.  We also provide "world leading" practice capabilities in specialty niches that have earned clients from across the globe.  The Firm is committed to helping our government contractor and subcontractor clients succeed in this highly regulated marketplace.  

Our practice is divided into key areas:  government contracts counseling; disputes and litigation; contractor ethics and compliance, internal investigations and disclosures; white collar defense of contractors and/or employees; real estate and leasing, corporate transactions and structured finance specifically for government contractors and subcontractors.  We also have capability to handle classified contracting issues. 

Led by a former Deputy General Counsel and Suspending and Debarring Official (acting) of the U.S. Air Force, Shulman Rogers' Government Contracts Practice also provides unique, affordable and proactive ethics and compliance assessments for government contractors designed to preserve value by reducing or mitigating the growing Sentencing Guidelines and Suspension and Debarment risk facing contractors.  Investors in contractors appreciate this additional assessment, and contractors use these benchmarking exercises to improve their level of ethical business operations.
