Government and Public Policy

We are indispensible resources for governments and those that do business with them.

As the need for public services expands in many areas, as does the push for privatization, many businesses count any number of government entities as their customers. Many governments also increasingly face the need to act more like businesses in their affairs.

The lawyers in Haynes and Boone’s Government and Public Policy Practice Group are highly skilled in representing companies and individuals, as well as government entities at all levels, in matters concerning government contracts and public finance.

Our team routinely provides a variety of counseling and litigation services to clients involved in the procurement processes of various federal, state and local government agencies. We handle matters ranging from contract negotiation and counseling to contract disputes and litigation.

In addition to our experience in a number of states, including Texas, California and New York, we also have appeared as lead counsel for our clients in many forums that resolve federal contracting disputes, including the Government Accountability Office, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and various contract appeals boards at federal agencies.

Our public finance team works not only with a variety of government entities but also with numerous financial institutions in the development, financing and construction of major public works projects.

Clients hire us repeatedly to help them with these complex and important public finance projects, not only because of our experience, but because our lawyers are easy to work with and deliver efficient and high quality service at every stage of the matter.

Our experience in government relations, government contracts and public finance spans a wide range of Haynes and Boone practices and industries, including:

  • Energy
  • Environmental
  • Finance
  • Healthcare
  • Litigation
  • Projects
  • Real Estate
  • Tax
  • Technology
