Government Contracting & Administrative Law

We know that transacting business with Florida state agencies and local governments is a critical component of the bottom line for many companies, large and small.   VLP’s Tallahassee lawyers have positioned themselves to counsel companies across industries on the intricacies of Florida’s purchasing code, protest code, and sovereign immunity laws. We have provided a broad range of advice, from review and drafting of procurement solicitation responses, to procurement protests, to contract performance and enforcement. The firm’s procurement clients have included major IT and telecommunications companies, defense contractors, and health care and health insurance providers. Occasionally, Florida state agencies themselves call upon our Tallahassee team to advise them on some of Florida’s largest state procurements. This has provided us the unique opportunity to view government contracting from both sides of the table. We believe all of our clients receive exceptional value from this perspective and experience. Indeed, we attribute our frequent success not only to the quality of our Tallahassee lawyers, but the quality of their experience in government contracting.

We also know that doing business with the government (and doing business generally) involves regulatory compliance. Our team has extensive experience in advising clients on regulatory compliance and, when necessary, challenging governmental licensing and rule requirements. Whether challenging a proposed rule, existing rule, or licensing matter, our team is well versed in the substantive and procedural intricacies of Florida administrative law.
