Government contracts can seem complicated. We can help.

SouthBank’s attorneys can help you navigate the government contracting process, keep you compliant, and ensure that you make the most of your opportunity once you secure the contract. During our attorneys’ two decades of experience in government contract law, we’ve helped out clients with multiple issues, including:

  • Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • Bid protests
  • Claims litigation
  • False claims litigation
  • Government audits and investigations
  • Requests for equitable adjustments and claims
  • Subcontracts and teaming agreements
  • Suspension and debarment matters
  • Terminations

We have deep familiarity with the unique challenges and issues that government contractors face. To overcome these challenges and help you meet your goals, we provide carefully tailored legal services unique to your business, leveraged by our extensive experience in the government contracting industry.

We know the industry because we’ve worked in the industry.

Our attorneys have represented a wide range of clients in the government contracting sector. But more importantly, they’ve also worked on the other side—as general counsel for government contractors, where they earned first-hand experience managing the contracts they’ll be negotiating on your behalf. As a result of this experience, our attorneys have formed close relationships in the industry to help you and your business succeed. When you work with us, you gain a partner with an extensive network and deep experience in the government-contracting space.

Building a GovCon community in Indiana and nationwide.

SouthBank Legal has taken a leading role in the Indiana region, building an ecosystem around government contracting and related innovation opportunities. To meet the needs of the government contracting industry in our region, we’ve developed a stand-alone website and program. In addition, we work closely with clients looking to take advantage of the funding available through the federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs, helping them meet the necessary criteria and comply with the programs’ requirements. For more information about the region’s SBIR/STTR accelerator, events and resources, visit INNOV8IN.

In addition to our regional ecosystem in Indiana, we opened an office in Washington, D.C., in 2021. This location helps us keep a finger on the pulse of the federal government, providing additional value to our clients who operate in the federal government contracting space. This office also helps us expand our growing reach by working with regional and national government contractors.
