Assisting You with Government Procurement and Contracting Matters

Government contractors face work and payment obstacles that other professionals don’t. Winning, performing, and closing out government contracts profitably requires contractors to carefully follow detailed contract regulations and contract terms. Your finances, reputation, and livelihood are at stake.

At Berenzweig Leonard, our team of experienced attorneys assists government contractors of all sizes through every phase of the government contracting process, from solicitation through contract close-out. We recognize the need to balance aggressive advocacy for our clients with the preservation of their long-term business relationships with their government customers. For years, we have designed creative legal strategies that help you achieve your goals.
