Small Business Contracting

In the world of Federal contracting, small business procurement is an area of extreme importance. Whether your company is looking to obtain certification as a small, disadvantaged company, faces a challenge to its small business size status, or wishes to protest another company's size or status, our attorneys have the skills necessary to assist you.

Our team has vast experience both asserting and defending size and status protests involving 8(a), HUBZone, VOSB/SDVOSB and WOSB/EDWOSB set-aside contracts. We have handled such protests at the agency level, both at the Department of Veterans Affairs as well as the Small Business Administration, and, when appropriate, at the judicial level. We have also handled a multitude of protests before various boards of contract appeals, the GAO and Court of Federal Claims on issues pertaining to small, and small disadvantaged, set-aside contracts, where the issues in dispute encompass something other than size status.

Our attorneys also spend a great deal of their time assisting clients with teaming and joint venture agreements for government solicitations. These issues arise most frequently on solicitations involving small business set-aside contracts. Whether we are assisting a large business subcontractor, a small business prime contractor, or a small business wishing to work with other small businesses, our thorough understanding of the Federal Acquisition Regulations allows us to draft and negotiate teaming and joint venture agreements that both fit the clients' needs and is compliant with all applicable small business regulations.
