Government Procurement Suspension, Debarment, and Other Exclusions

When violations occur, suspension or debarment from government contracting are powerful tools the government can use to preserve procurement integrity. Because debarment by one contracting authority extends government-wide and reaches procurement and non-procurement activities alike, the effects of a suspension or debarment on your business can be devastating.

We work with you to minimize risk and to negotiate favorable terms should allegations arise, and provide advice should you face allegations of misconduct in the multiple arenas in which a single offense can be addressed (criminal charges, civil lawsuits, and administrative action such as suspension). In addition, we have counseled major financial clients on the adverse effects of suspension or debarment, and successfully defended major international contractors faced with potential debarment from future global acquisitions.
