The Greenberg Traurig Government Contracts team routinely serves as counsel to banks and other financial institutions in structuring, negotiating, and documenting single, multibank, and syndicated credit facilities where federal government receivables constitute the collateral. This work includes equipment leasing, factoring (involving financing), revolving lines of credit, and cash-flow loans to fund new contract startup costs.
Our experience with the Federal Assignment of Claims Act, coupled with an extensive knowledge of the Federal Acquisition Rules, benefits clients by mitigating the unique risks associated with government contract financing. Greenberg Traurig is also specially positioned to assist financial institutions through our very substantial litigation experience pursuing claims against the federal government before the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals, the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
We regularly represent financing institutions in transactions involving numerous federal agencies, including (among others) the Department of Defense, the General Services Administration, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Internal Revenue Service, and the Department of State.
