Each of our government contracts partners has substantial experience in litigation, regulatory and legislative matters. The Government Contracts Practice Group draws upon Kirkland's well-known strengths in litigation and corporate transactions, and other specialty practices including antitrust, environmental and intellectual property. Our lawyers are known for working efficiently with legal and technical experts and using skillful negotiation and counseling to anticipate and resolve issues that arise during procurements, in claims or protests, and in the course of government investigations. In staffing client matters, our goal is to work in a partnership with our clients, teaming with in-house counsel and staff to provide effective legal services of the best value.
