Companies involved in doing business with the government will, at some point, run into a legal problem with the federal government.

Government Small Business Matters: Many small businesses have or will experience pushback from the government agency or the SBA regarding small business compliance regulations. In other situations, small firms may find themselves under investigation for alleged violations of small business regulations, procurement fraud, or some other civil or criminal issue. Watson’s government contract lawyers frequently help clients to overcome the stressful issues that may arise with small business size standards, FAR 19 compliance, teaming, and joint venture affiliation disputes.
Contract Terminations for Default and Convenience: Watson & Associates’ procurement lawyers represent contractors facing termination for default or have been notified of a termination for convenience action. We help clients to prepare responses to show cause notices and appeal default terminations to the respective courts in an effort to have the agency’s decision reversed.
Suspension and Debarment. When contractors face a recommendation for suspension or debarment, our government contract lawyers and federal procurement law team can help. We have vast experience representing companies or employees facing a notice of debarment or suspension. We help you respond to the SDO on debarment issues, help with discovery or appear to headings on your behalf.
Procurement Fraud and False Claims Act Defense: One aspect of our federal procurement law practice includes representing individuals and corporations that are subjected to Qui Tam and False Claims Act procurement fraud cases. This area of practice requires detailed knowledge of the various government contracting regulations and statutes. It also requires a level of procurement experience that can ultimately help the client to avoid or minimize criminal liability, jail time, or heavy civil fines.
Buy American Act Compliance. We help small businesses, prime construction, subcontractors, and manufacturers to assess their manufacturing process and procurement methods for compliance with the Buy American Act (BAA). Many false claims and fraud cases originate from the Buy American Statute. Our government procurement lawyers provide procurement legal advice and guidance.
Government Contract Claims: A common aspect of our procurement experience is to help clients to prepare, litigate and appeal contract disputes against the federal government. We provide consulting and litigation services. Our lawyers are well-versed in Government Contract Disputes Act claims and litigating disputes.
Small Business Government Contracting: At Watson, we pride ourselves on our deep experience level with government small business programs and the government contracting procedures and regulations involved. We provide legal support and navigation through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) programs, including the 8(a) Business Development Program (8(a) BD) for small disadvantaged businesses, the SBA HUBZone Program, the Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Program (SDVOSB) and more.
