About Us

Federal, state, and local governments are among the largest purchasers of goods and services domestically and around the globe. Contractors seeking to satisfy this demand face intense competition, complex regulations, and heightened scrutiny regardless of size or industry. Kilpatrick Townsend has the experience and knowledge to allow clients to navigate the maze of laws, regulations, and contract provisions related to government contracts in order to ensure compliance while also meeting clients’ business objectives and preserving their rights. The firm’s comprehensive Government Contracting practice offers advice and representation related to the full spectrum of government contracts issued by almost all federal agencies. Our experience ranges from reviewing and advising on the terms of solicitations, bringing and defending bid protests, prosecuting contract disputes, internal and government investigations, regulatory compliance, suspension and debarment, transactional issues, and unique government contracting intellectual property matters.
