Shutts & Bowen offers an experienced and diverse team of legal counsel that guides our aerospace and defense clients through their transactions, investments, mergers and acquisitions, and related disputes. Our attorneys are experienced in working with government, administrative and regulatory agencies and are knowledgeable in corporate, intellectual property, labor and employment, finance, and real estate law.
Our attorneys routinely advise companies under contract with government agencies, as well as those involved in bids or bid protests. For government and defense contractors, our government and administrative attorneys have experience with public contracts, procurement processes and regulatory requirements. We also protect our technology and manufacturer clients’ assets with patents, licensing agreements, and, if necessary, litigation.
As former military officers, several of our attorneys are uniquely positioned to lend their expertise in the defense industry. Among our attorneys are a former Air Force Assistant General Counsel who has handled more than 150 bid protests; former and current Judge Advocate Generals with contracting experience; and a Naval Flight Officer and Commander with active TS/SCI clearance.
Our team further assists clients by maintaining and fostering relationships with key federal agencies including the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security.
