Speaking Engagement

The government contractor marketplace is in a state of constant flux. Small businesses enter the market only to be acquired by their peers, large businesses or outside investors. Meanwhile, consolidation and divestures among mid-size and major corporations are on the rise. Government contractor transactions present unique issues that government contracts attorneys must be aware of in order to avoid numerous traps for the unwary. This panel will address:

  • What is the current state of the government contractor M&A marketplace?
  • What key deal terms and diligence items should buyers and sellers focus on?
  • What risks and opportunities are presented by contractors with small business set-aside contracts?
  • How should parties deal with foreign investment and/or foreign operation and control of U.S. based government contractors?
  • What are the best practices for transactions involving classified contracts?
  • How should parties avoid common traps associated with novation and other change of control requirements?
