Government Contracting is big business in Virginia, including the Hampton Roads area where our office is located. Many of the world's largest government contractors are headquartered in Virginia. Some consider federal government work to be a safe haven during turbulent economic times. Others rely on government contracting work for their entire livelihood. Being a federal government contractor imposes requirements on companies not typically found in the commercial market. Justifiably, the federal government requires much greater transparency into how dollars are spent than is typically required in the private sector.
Whether you are an established government contractor or just looking into government contracting, Wall, Einhorn & Chernitzer can help you reach your goals. Our government contracting team has gained a deep understanding of the government's processes and requirements, and how they apply to government contractors.
