Sophisticated Regulatory Advice

A shifting maze of rules and regulations governs every aspect of a federal government contractor’s operations — from how they procure business to how they manage their workforce, and beyond. To succeed, a contractor needs advisers with the knowledge to help them effectively navigate the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) and multiple agency-specific FAR Supplements. Beyond that, they face complex compliance challenges under the Truth in Negotiations Act (TINA), DCAA’s Contract Audit Manual provisions, the False Claims Act, the Fraud Enforcement Recovery Act (FERA), the Contract Disputes Act (CDA) and a host of other mandates.

Fox Rothschild serves as clients’ trusted guide through this highly regulated and hyper-competitive landscape. Armed with a nuanced understanding of the procurement process, we counsel clients on how to avoid risk and secure fair and equitable treatment under a full range of regulatory regimes. Knowledgeable advisors, meticulous internal investigators, staunch advocates — our attorneys help government contractors perform successfully and achieve their business objectives.
