Acquisitions involving entities that possess government contracts require specialized due diligence because the industry is subject to heavy regulation. Even selling commercial items to the government involves some risk for certain breaches of contract or violations of government contracts laws. Transactions that involve any degree of foreign ownership and control may require disclosures to maintain a facility security clearance for classified work and compliance with export laws and may prompt a voluntary notice with the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS).

Please join us for a one-hour webinar to review the unique issues that arise in corporate transactions that involve government contractors.

Topics will include:

  • Novation agreements and deal structure
  • The importance of specialized due diligence
  • Representations and warranties
  • Risks of civil False Claims Act damages and suspension and debarment
  • The mandatory disclosure rule
  • Facility security clearances
  • US Department of Defense cybersecurity obligations
