Truss Faber has successfully represented contractors working in the often complex, occasionally arcane industry of building local, regional or federal facilities that serve the government. Our firm’s experience in representing government contractors and resolving substantial business-centric crises positions us well to provide insight into the issues confronting government contractors and their executives. The issues facing our government contract clients are especially complicated, so it’s extremely satisfying for our team to produce results in areas where most fail.
