Government Contracts

The United States government is the largest construction customer in the world, and the states, local governments and agencies follow closely behind. We help contractors obtain and profit from government business, and to help public owners procure needed services and facilities on time, within budget and without claims.

We know government contracting. That is why we are the go-to firm for public owners and their design professionals when preparing contract documents for complex projects involving federal funding, large and unique vessels and best value procurement. For decades, our attorneys have advised clients on issues such as bidding, compliance, investigation and audit, requests for equitable adjustment and claims on government projects throughout the Pacific Northwest, including Fairchild Air Force Base, the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, Naval Base Kitsap (Bangor), Naval Air Station Whidbey Island and Fort Lewis in Washington. Our attorneys have prosecuted claims on federal projects located as far south as Columbia, and as far north as Elmendorf Air Force Base and Fort Wainwright in Alaska. Closer to home, our attorneys routinely represent clients in matters involving Sound Transit, the Washington State Department of Transportation, the cities of Seattle, Tacoma and Spokane, and King, Pierce and Spokane Counties.

We also specialize in obtaining client certification for government contract programs and set-asides. Our clients include Washington state minority and woman’s business enterprises, federal woman-owned small businesses, veteran-owned small businesses and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses.
