Stinson Attorneys Launch New Government Contracting Blog
Stinson LLP partners Susan Warshaw Ebner and Eric Whytsell recently launched Government Contracting Matters, the newest of Stinson's blogs. The blog will focus on key legal and practical considerations for making better business decisions, pursuing and defending protests and claims, and ensuring compliance in federal, state and local government contracting matters.
"We're very excited to be launching this blog," said Whytsell, who co-chairs the firm's Government Contracts & Investigations practice group along with Ebner. "We've designed it to be of interest and application to individuals, companies and organizations who are contracting or subcontracting with the government."
In addition to Ebner and Whytsell, other Stinson attorneys who assist clients with government contracting matters will also be contributing to the site on a wide variety of topics and emerging issues of interest to the government contracting industry, with new content added weekly.
"Doing business with the government can be complicated, especially for first-time contractors and subcontractors," said Ebner. "We advise clients in connection with all types of government contracts, grants and transactions, and wanted to create a resource that encompasses the breadth of our work while helping readers understand fundamental legal and industry considerations."
Readers can subscribe to receive all new blog posts in their inbox once a week. They can also access the site to view a curated set of links to useful resources for federal contracting, grants, cost accounting, claims, small business issues and general administration.
Whytsell and Ebner recently helped edit and write the American Bar Association Public Contract Law Section's latest publication, the "Guide to Service Subcontract Terms and Conditions." The book serves as a guide for practitioners involved in drafting, interpreting and managing service subcontracts, and is their second collaborative publication on subcontracting.
Both partners serve on the Section Council of the American Bar Association's Public Contract Law Section, as well as the Section's Publications Board. In addition, Ebner begins her term as Chair-Elect of the Section this month.
