Federal Government Contracts

The U.S. federal government is the largest purchaser of goods and services in the world. However, the federal acquisition system is fraught with complexity and risk. Haynsworth Sinkler Boyd understands the business of government and the surrounding regulatory framework.

Our clients are new, small business entrants in the federal procurement marketplace and established large, multinational businesses with existing contracts and agency relationships. Our Government Contracts practice is national, and our clients are based throughout the United States.

Our team brings prior government contractor, military, and agency experience that informs our advice and solutions. Uniquely, our Government Contracts practice is integrated with our nationally recognized Construction practice, yielding a combined strength and particular understanding of the intersection of federal procurement law and delivery of architecture, engineering, and construction projects.

In that regard, we seek to solve problems with practical solutions and consideration for our clients’ broader project and business objectives. Our strength is understanding your business as you do and to provide strategic and tactical counsel from beginning to end.
