Bracewell’s Government Contracts and Corporate lawyers work as an integrated team to provide complete solutions when representing clients in mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and other investments in public and private companies that conduct business in the government space or participate in government-sponsored programs. We have substantial experience in advising clients on a variety of statutory and regulatory implications that arise when acquiring, selling or investing in entities doing business with the government. The lawyers in our Government Contract Group are experienced in conducting due diligence on a company’s government contracts to identify and help quantify the unique risks faced by companies doing business with the government. Some of our lawyers have high-level security clearances so that we are able to support our clients’ needs when the transactions implicate the most sensitive classified contracts.
