Government Contracting

The bidding and procurement of government contracts is complex – even for those that have registered with the Central Contractor Registry for federal work or have been short-listed by other local, county or state entities. Through our strong relationships and extensive experience, Bilzin Sumberg's Land Development & Government Relations attorneys work to ease the complexity of the bidding and procurement process, from responding to procurement solicitations through defending against or prosecuting quasi-judicial bid protests. Our attorneys routinely represent developers and contractors in complying with the government procurement procedures of various agencies of the U.S. Federal Government, State of Florida, Miami-Dade County and various other counties and cities throughout Florida.

Bilzin Sumberg’s Land Development & Government Relations attorneys have cultivated long-standing relationships with highly qualified experts, consultants, government officials and business leaders in Florida and beyond to help our clients through the bidding and procurement process. Furthermore, many of our attorneys have held positions in government and thus have the diverse experience to help our clients approach bidding and procurement projects in an efficient manner. In 2015, the Daily Business Review named the members of our Government Contracting team as finalists for the "Most Effective Lawyers" Public Interest category in recognition of their effective government contracting client work.

Bilzin Sumberg has also been involved in notable Public-Private Partnership projects, including rail and transit facilities, airports, marinas, sports facilities, convention centers, healthcare/life sciences facilities, water and sewer facilities, parking structures and various infrastructure developments.

We assist clients through all phases of the procurement process, including:


  • Development of bid and procurement solicitation documents
  • Preparation of responses to competitive procurement situations
  • Defense and challenging of awards through both administrative and judicial proceedings
  • Negotiation of contract terms
  • Assistance with contract compliance



    "They represent the best of both worlds, where you have a very sophisticated core group of attorneys with a significant amount of experience, but they are still a local firm with a lot of local know-how."
