Government contracts can be competitive, complicated, and have many requirements and compliance needs. Truss Faber has the specific knowledge of governmental regulations and the experience needed to help clients through the process.

Both government agencies and government contractors come to Truss Faber 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. 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.
