Government Contracting

Diligent. Knowledgeable. Effective.

U.S. companies spend over $500 billion annually on federal government contracts, with the United States Departments of Defense and Energy accounting for approximately 70% of contract spending. For companies involved in the energy, manufacturing, construction, environmental and service industries, our government contracting team supports clients at every step along the way — from creating and registering new entities, competing for contracts, and assuring adequate compliance programs to closing out contracts and resolving claims and disputes.

We work with clients to maintain ongoing compliance with complex government contract requirements, including those imposed by the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) and Agency FAR Supplements, as well Buy America Act requirements, International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), and various socio-economic programs. We also have experience handling contracting matters beyond U.S. borders, including projects in Poland, France, Germany, the UK, Russia, Guam, Afghanistan, Kuwait, and Djibouti.

Breaking Through: How Small Businesses Can Accelerate Growth Through Federal Grants and Programs

The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are highly competitive, with grant recipients earning up to $150,000 in initial seed funding and up to $1 million in subsequent stages. Though the SBIR and STTR programs differ in key respects, both offer equity-free funding to encourage small businesses to ramp up their research and development (R&D) with the potential for commercialization.

Frost Brown Todd is invested in helping small businesses learn about the federal regulations and requirements that govern participation in the SBIR/STTR programs, as well as how small businesses can position themselves for successful commercialization. Starting July 22, 2020, we are hosting a series of weekly webinars focused on the opportunities and critical issues impacting small businesses, particularly in the government contracting space.

Our attorneys will discuss avenues for funding innovative projects, the regulatory overlay for government contractors, and strategies for protecting and commercializing your intellectual property assets.

During this five-part webinar series, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn how to prepare for the CMMC and other regulations governing cyber and data security.
  • Hear from leading advisors in the private equity and mergers and acquisitions marketplace about practical and proven commercialization strategies.
