Acquisitions & Mergers

Dempsey Fontana counsels clients on the unique government contracting issues that arise in the acquisition and sale of government contractors, corporate reorganizations, and the divestiture of contracts and related assets.  The federal marketplace presents a unique and challenging environment when it comes to such transactions.
