Defense Contracts (DFAR) Formation, Administration, Compliance


Defense contracts often involve laws and regulations which are different from and in addition to those applicable to non-defense contracts. Even experienced government contracts attorneys often do not have sufficient experience with the nuances of defense contracts to adequately advise clients. FH+H attorneys have extensive defense and national security backgrounds which give the ability to represent defense contractors in all aspects of government contracts.
