Federal, state, and local governments are among the largest purchasers of goods and services domestically and around the world. While the sheer scale of purchasing make them highly attractive, it also involves fiercely competitive processes, requiring higher scrutiny than in private/commercial sales.

Kilpatrick Townsend’s Government Contracting Team & Public Procurement Team has provided decades of comprehensive, tailored advice for contractors, municipalities, heavily-regulated, private businesses, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). Our experience ranges from reviewing terms of solicitations; bringing and defending bid protests; prosecuting contract disputes; conducting internal and government investigations; and handling regulatory compliance, suspension, and debarment transactional issues and unique government contracting intellectual property matters. With Washington, D.C. as our practice hub, our attorneys bring a unique perspective into the inner-workings of virtually all major federal agencies and the legislative and judicial branches. We also have experience with state, local, and international procurements across six continents in a broad range of industries, including construction and infrastructure, aerospace, defense, health care, IT, environmental, process and manufacturing, energy, and real estate.
