Government Contracting & Regulatory Advice

Bland & Partners attorneys frequently represent contractors who have supply, service and construction contracts with federal and state governments. We specialize in providing our clients with advice and contract risk analysis in connection with our review and interpretation of government solicitations, requests for bids and applicable Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) clauses. We also help contractors mitigate risk and obtain the best commercial position possible through contract, change order and modification negotiations. Our attorneys have also advised and represented our clients in connection with claims and disputes arising out of government procurement. We have represented our clients before the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals (CBCA), the United States Court of Federal Claims (COFC) and United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) in matters involving bid protests, appeals of requests for equitable adjustments, termination decisions and other matters involving False Claims, Foreign Military Sales, ITAR, suspensions and debarments.

Bland & Partners attorneys also frequently provide advice to contractors regarding a host of United States regulatory programs and cabotage laws impacting the import, export and transportation of merchandise, including the Jones Act (U.S. Coastwise Law); Export Administration Regulations (EARs) and Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA).
