Government & Public Agencies

Government Contracts & Procurement

For years we have counseled clients in contract and procurement matters affecting public entities. We have been involved in the preparation, negotiation, and review of contracts, leases, public bidding and purchasing documents for a diversity of relationships and transactions.

We advise both public sector and private clients on governmental purchasing policies, bid and proposal preparation, negotiation regarding procurements, sealed bids, requests for proposals, requests for qualifications, protests, administration of government contracts after award, adequacy of contract performance, satisfaction of contract requirements and remedies for breach.

Lashly & Baer has represented public sector and private clients in arbitration, mediation, and litigation in state and federal courts among developers, owners, contractors, vendors, consultants, sub-contractors, sureties, architects, engineers, construction managers, funding agencies and public interest organizations.
