REAVES GOVCON understands the challenges of navigating the myriad regulations that govern doing business with the government.
Working together with our Corporate/Mergers & Acquisitions team, REAVES GOVCON’s Government Contracts team counsels government contractor clients through business transactions (both buy side and sell side) that must take into account government contracts regulations, such as complex affiliation, recertification, and compliance rules for small businesses and large businesses alike.
Importantly, we also help businesses ensure compliance with government contracts and small business regulations and also help determine eligibility for the SBA’s various programs for federal government contractors, such as the All Small Mentor Protégé Program (ASMPP), the 8(a), Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned (SDVO), HUBZone, and the Women-Owned and Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small business (WOSB and EDWOSB) programs.
REAVES GOVCON supports our government contractor clients on bid protests (both at the GAO and at the U.S. Court of Federal Claims), as well as size and status protests at SBA’s Area Offices and the SBA’s Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA). We often help clients navigate the SBA’s complex regulations and provide guidance concerning affiliation both inside and outside of size protest settings.
REAVES GOVCON also regularly advises government contractors, both small and large, on strategic teaming alliances such as Mentor Protégé, Joint Venturing, Teaming, Subcontracting, all to take full advantage of government contracting and SBA programs.
