Government Contracts


Helping Small Businesses Navigate Challenging Regulatory Waters

The dizzying array of laws and regulations that apply to government contracts is complex and constantly evolving. The Amadeo Law Firm helps small businesses navigate these challenging waters as they proceed from small business preference certifications, to bidding and performance, to contract close-out.

Protecting Technology Innovators

As agencies consolidate procurements into larger contracts, small businesses increasingly must team up, or otherwise form partnerships or joint ventures to successfully compete for, and perform under the contracts and task orders. Technology companies, at the same time however, often must take precautions to protect valuable innovations developed before or during contract performance. The Amadeo Law Firm, helps clients protect their technology with carefully structured teaming, nondisclosure, licensing and technology transfer agreements.

Counseling SBIR & STTR Firms

The Amadeo Law Firm counsels small businesses that participate in the federal government’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. Branded by the federal government as “America’s Seed Fund, ” the SBIR and STTR programs are competitive programs aimed at encouraging small businesses to participate in innovation, research and development of technologies that can meet the government’s technology needs and that can then be commercialized. These programs often can provide small businesses unique opportunities to "seed" the early stages of technology development through SBIR or STTR awards, while also placing increased restrictions on the government's rights over, and disclosure of, the new technology that is developed.  The Amadeo Law Firm has counseled small businesses engaged in Phase I and Phase II SBIR and STTR research and development, including by negotiating on their behalf with STTR research institution partners, and has assisted clients in successfully obtaining Phase III designation over non-SBIR contracts. 

Cost-Effective Support For Defense Suppliers

At a time when Department of Defense agencies and their contractors are increasingly tasked with doing more with less, the Amadeo Law Firm offers sophisticated, yet cost-effective and efficient, legal support to small businesses and technology companies that supply hardware and technology and provide services.
