Foley's Government Procurement attorneys provide legal solutions on every area of government procurement law, with particular focus on contract formation and structure; special performance issues; and compliance and training.
U.S. government agencies acquire more goods and services than any other group in the world. Likewise, state and local government agencies spend billions of dollars on products and services each year. Collectively, this market presents tremendous business opportunities for contractors. Contracting with a sovereign, however, presents ever-changing statutory and regulatory procurement requirements, along with unique processes and consequences.
We pride ourselves in providing cost-effective legal counsel to you, even in the most complicated circumstances, with a focus on minimizing risk and avoiding disputes. When disputes do arise, our seasoned Government Procurement litigators bring deep experience in resolving issues in every government contract setting, and before virtually every federal administrative and judicial body.
Below is a list of our service areas.
We helped our client -- the Teacher Retirement System of Texas -- with preparation of the Request for Proposal for a Line of Business (LOB) system, revised vendors proposals, assisted in drafting the Contract for LOB, and negotiated the LOB Contract.
