Counsel for Government Contracting Issues
If you or your company has been informed that you are under investigation for a potential violation of the False Claims Act, having an experienced attorney is an immediate and critical need. There are other less critical times to obtain counsel for potential government contract issues. In December 2008, new federal government regulations were issued, called the "Contractor Code of Business Ethics and Conduct," which impose strict compliance, internal control, and disclosure obligations on government contractors. Daniel Hurson is a Washington DC procurement fraud attorney who can help you with a wide range of potential issues such as:
- Evaluate the extent needed in internal investigation of potential procurement irregularities
- Advise regarding the disclosure needed to comply with new federal regulations
- Review internal controls
- Devise due diligence and compliance programs
A small business can be suspended or debarred for knowing failures to disclose misconduct. The Law Offices of Daniel J. Hurson, LLC, is able to review the facts of your situation and provide government contractors with counsel and preventative measures related to compliance and procurement. For modest fixed fees, we can develop ongoing compliance programs in which we are on call to review ongoing compliance issues.
"The sheer magnitude of federal contracts pouring out under the new administration has generated predictions of billions in fraud, and the inspectors general are waiting for the low-hanging fruit to be disclosed."
