The Whay Law Firm is a full-service government contract law firm. We provide government contractors with an affordable and effective alternative to the high hourly rates charged by many firms. As a small law firm, we provide personalized attention to each client. We recognize that each client’s business is unique, so we work closely with each client to develop an appropriate strategy to reach their goals.

Our clients range from small businesses bidding on their first government contract to billion dollar multi-national companies with numerous government contracts. Although the firm provides legal services to Fortune 500 companies, its primary focus is upon small- and medium-sized companies. Most of our clients qualify under one of the many small business programs (8(a); SDVOSB; HUBZone, etc.).

Government contract laws and regulations are complex and voluminous. The Federal Government has thousands of lawyers guarding the Government’s interests. When dealing with the Federal Government, you need an attorney that understands the process, from solicitation through contract close-out. Unlike many other firms, we are solely focused on assisting government contractors.

Our practice encompasses all aspects of competing for and performing government contracts. Below is a list highlighting many of our services. Please click on the service in order to see more details regarding how we can help you.
