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.

Problems We Solve for Clients

Both government agencies and government contractors come to us for help negotiating contracts and finding solutions to contractual issues when they occur. Our team has worked through multiple complex design and construction issues, working directly with all levels of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and NAFVAC leadership, especially on projects in remote and logistically challenging locations.
