Contracting with the government, whether federal, state, local, or foreign, presents businesses with tremendous opportunities, but also significant challenges and risks. For more than 40 years, Crowell & Moring's Government Contracts Group has set the standard for effective legal guidance in this highly complex arena. Today, we have one of the largest and most reputable government contracts practices in the United States and worldwide. Our experience and litigation victories have been recognized year after year. We are repeatedly recognized by Chambers USA as a tier-one practice and named to Law360's "Practice Groups of the Year" listing.

Your success is our success. Our team advises a broad range of clients, from privately held businesses to multinational, publicly-traded Fortune 100 corporations, as well as small non-profits, academic institutions, and emerging research and development enterprises. We handle the toughest cases in all forums and we deliver big wins for our clients.

  • Defended $2 billion Department of Energy award both before the Government Accountability Office and the follow-on protest before the Court of Federal Claims.
  • Handled government contracts due diligence and negotiation of a $750 million transaction.
  • Achieved dismissal of a False Claims Act suit alleging Trade Agreements Act fraud against several GSA Schedule contractors.

We cover all the bases when it comes to your government contracts issues. Our experience covers virtually every aspect of the increasingly complex and heavily regulated government contracts and grants process, from entering the government marketplace and bidding on public contracts to complying with complex regulatory regimes and performing contracts, litigating disputes, and handling terminations. We provide consistent and comprehensive guidance and support to help foster growth and success, as well as get — and keep — companies out of hot water.

We leverage the strengths of the firm. Our practice is bolstered by the firm’s outstanding Corporate, White Collar/Investigations, Intellectual Property, International Trade, and Labor & Employment groups, as well as our policy and consulting affiliate, C&M International.  We regularly partner to form multidisciplinary teams designed to address the most complex government contracts issues.
