Phillips Lytle’s Government Contracts attorneys are well versed in navigating the complex legal issues faced by contractors in the New York State and federal marketplaces. Our approach emphasizes the development of legal solutions that integrate with our clients’ strategic business objectives, and our team has broad, in-depth experience in all facets of government contracts law.
We regularly assist our clients at every stage of the government contracts process, from responding to solicitations through award and administration, to obtaining information about government contracting matters via Freedom of Information Act requests, to resolution of disputes (by litigation or other means) including strategic communications.
Phillips Lytle’s strategic counseling is guided by our attorneys’ extensive knowledge of the intricate framework that makes up government contracts law. In the federal marketplace, Phillips Lytle has assisted clients to navigate the intricate requirements of, among other things, including the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), the Competition in Contracting Act, and the Contract Disputes Act, along with statutes and regulations governing niche areas, such as the Concessions Policy Act of 1965 and the National Park Service Concessions Management Improvement Act of 1998. In one notable FAR matter, the firm successfully appealed the proposed debarment of a Fortune 500 client company, securing dismissal of an order potentially affecting 40% of the client’s business.
In New York, Phillips Lytle has guided clients to comply with and enforce public contracting requirements set forth in, for example, the New York General Municipal Law, Public Authorities Law, and State Finance Law and related regulations.
Our Government Contracts attorneys are experienced in litigating contract claims against the U.S. government and are well versed in the unique jurisdiction of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, the U.S. Government Accountability Office and the various boards of contract appeals.
