Innovating government from within so services and processes can be more efficient requires more than emerging technologies and IT modernization strategies. It requires compliance, reporting and regulations that don’t often make the headlines, but nonetheless make it all possible. With every proposal, contract award or technology, GovCon in-house lawyers make sure the deals are secure, the technology is legal and everything involved falls within government requirements.
General counsels oversee the full lifecycle of legal matters, from contracts and compliance to navigating all elements of government reporting requirements and regulations. As you’ll read, this can include intellectual property and data rights, industrial security and foreign ownership laws, export controls and more. For WashingtonExec’s Top 15 General Counsels to Watch in 2021, we identified the general counsels in GovCon enabling companies to provide government customers with what they need securely and legally to keep the nation moving forward.
