Maryland Government Contracting Lawyer

Conducting business with the federal government can be both lucrative and rewarding, but the rules and regulations imposed on government contractors can be daunting, to say the least. Federal procurement laws are complex and constantly shifting, and when you are dealing in federal sectors such as intelligence, defense or homeland security, then additional national security issues will be bound up with these complicated federal contracting issues as well. Dealing with the federal government is complicated enough without the additional layer of complexity added by the national security envelope. Expert legal assistance may make all the difference in your attempts to obtain and perform under a government contract.

The Maryland government contract lawyers at Henault & Sysko Chartered can guide you through the arcane and complex world of government contracting. Our firm includes a team of lawyers with expertise not only in national security law and security clearances, but also in business, litigation, technology transactions and federal contracts. Let us help you negotiate, draft or review all the necessary documents from the initial bid throughout the lifetime of your contract, including:

  • Contracts
  • Subcontracts
  • RFPs
  • Teaming agreements
  • Mitigation plans
  • Contractor performance
  • Rights-retention


Small companies especially may feel discouraged from competing for government contracts when faced with the complexity of government regulations. Regardless of your company’s size or level of sophistication, our attorneys can guide you through the requirements of Federal Acquisition Regulations, including the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement and other agency supplementary regulations.
