When you’re a small government contractor, some business activities you can bootstrap and some you can’t. One area where you can’t afford to skimp on is legal counsel. At its core, contracting with the federal government is a complex legal exercise with its own vernacular, laws, and regulations. Large federal contractors have Law Departments dedicated to negotiating, drafting, executing contracts and managing legal risk. While small government contractors don’t require dedicated Law Departments, they do require a great attorney with expertise in government contracts.

Steven is a major thought leader in the government contracting community. This is Part I of our discussion with him.
