Defense Innovation & Govtech

Sophisticated counsel at the intersection of private sector innovation and government and defense opportunities

Private sector innovations can help governments solve big problems and better serve citizens.

Our Defense Innovation & GovTech team works closely with technology companies to address the innovation needs of defense contractors, systems integrators, and government users and beneficiaries.

We help these technology companies navigate and balance the benefits and constraints of government funding as well as venture funding through all stages of their growth and innovation lifecycle­--factoring critical legal areas such as government contracts, intellectual property and national security.

For dual-use and public sector-focused clients, we pair full-service capabilities spanning corporate, litigation and intellectual property with experienced government and regulatory counsel to help them traverse legal and regulatory issues related to their government grantors and public sector customers.


We have decades of experience working with companies of all sizes, focused on govtech, civic tech, edtech and smart city sectors to engage and prosper partnering with public sector entities including:

  • U.S. federal (e.g., U.S. Department of Defense)
  • U.S. state governments and agencies
  • Local governments
  • K-12
  • Higher education
  • Quasi-governmental entities (e.g., U.S. Postal Service)
  • International organizations (e.g., United Nations)
  • Tribal nations
  • Global governments
