Daytona Beach Federal Government Contractor Lawyer


Experienced Daytona Beach Attorneys Providing Legal Counsel For Federal Government Contractors

The Daytona Beach federal government contractor attorneys with Lankford Law Firm provide legal counsel and services to federal and state government contractors across Central Florida. Government contractors are subject to a wide range of fairly complicated legal requirements that may not impact other businesses.

As a result, even the sharpest business professionals can find it difficult to understand fully the sometimes-convoluted requirements and intricate technicalities of the typical government contract. So, our business lawyers focus on working with and helping Florida businesses that have been awarded a government contract.

Offering Help Drafting and Reviewing Government Contracts and Bids

While some contractors are quite adept at drafting bids and reviewing contracts, others require a bit of assistance in this area. Our team of business attorneys is here to provide you with the help and guidance you need to draft a detailed, well-written bid to land your next job.

Then, once your bid is accepted, our legal team can perform a comprehensive review of the contract to ensure that the terms of the contract are clear, precise, and favorable to you as a contractor. A business lawyer understands the “legalese” of your government contracts and we know how the various elements of that contract can impact your business and your bottom line.

Our goal is to help guide our clients with their government contracts and any legal issues that may arise as a result of their business dealings. We strive to help you maximize your profits, minimize liability, and resolve any issues that arise. Our legal team will focus on all of the contract-related issues and legal matters so you can focus on whatever it is that you do best!

Your Guide to Affirmative Action Compliance for Federal Government Contractors

Many government contractors are required to comply with affirmative action guidelines. Our Florida business attorneys help government contractors with a range of affirmative action-related issues such as:

  • drafting affirmative action plans;
  • implement affirmative action plans; and
  • prepare written guidelines to help contractors identify potential employees who belong to minority groups.

For example, a federal contractor may conduct training programs, outreach efforts, and other activities to encourage the recruitment and hiring of qualified minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and covered veterans.

Our government contract lawyers also work with companies and independent federal contractors who need help understanding the rather comprehensive procedural and reporting requirements. Contractors are required to conduct internal audits and train management regarding the practical changes needed for full implementation of the plan. Additionally, we help government contractors to complete, review, and file their EEO-1, VETS-100, and VETS-100A reports.

Providing E-Verify Assistance for Government Contractors

The E-Verify system is mandatory for all government contractors. The E-Verify system allows employers to confirm a job candidate’s eligibility to work in the U.S.

When an employment offer is made, the job seeker must complete an I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form. The employer then enters that information into the E-Verify system. The information is compared to Social Security and Homeland Security records, and the job candidate is either “authorized” or “tentatively non-confirmed.”

The Daytona Beach federal government contractor attorneys at the Lankford Law Firm work with contractors to implement E-Verify, to create or update a background screening plan that considers EEOC guidelines, and to update the application and interviewing process for compliance with always changing and evolving employment laws, regulations, and Fair Credit Reporting Act.

Your Source for Assistance With Government Contractor Compliance Requirements

Government contractors are subject to a number of different requirements. The sheer volume of these various requirements can seem overwhelming, especially for a businessman or businesswoman who is just now placing their first bid.

Federal government contracts can be quite lucrative for businesses, so it’s vital that you have an experienced company lawyer who can work to ensure that you’re in full compliance with the many requirements that are in place.
