Helping Federal Contractors Avoid Costly Mistakes When Subject to a Government Investigation. Nationwide Help. Call 1(866)-601-5518 for a Free Initial Consultation.
Individuals and federal contractors subject to government investigations are often caught off-guard when there are allegations of fraud, corruption or allegations of criminal activity. Responding and cooperating with federal investigators can be tricky. Although you are required to cooperate, companies have constitutional rights that they must protect. Therefore, the initial stages are very important.
Federal government contracts laws are very complex and also very strict. When companies are either under government investigation for procurement fraud, False Claims Act violations or SBA small business fraud, FBI investigation activity or some other investigation, both companies, and individuals have certain constitutional rights that must be protected at all costs.
