Some of our specific services include:
Government Contracting – Drawing from its experience administering an estimated $20 billion in state government transactions, our Maryland team can help clients get results in complex state and federal procurement and appropriations processes. When required, our government contracts team can pursue bid protests and other forms of government contracting disputes.
International Economic Development and Inbound Investment – Companies from around the world seek a presence in Maryland in order to capitalize on the state’s transportation assets, its universities, its educated workforce, its connections with major technology companies and government contractors, and its proximity to an enormous potential customer, the United States Federal Government. Our Baltimore team understands this process first-hand and has the well-established contacts to give our clients a strategic advantage in this competitive field.
Government Affairs – Our Maryland team has the access to ensure that our clients’ interests are represented in legislative debates at the state, local and federal levels.
Public Affairs and Crisis Management – There are times when legal talent and political clout alone are just not enough to help clients succeed. Our Maryland team includes advisors with decades of public affairs experience who help clients communicate about sensitive, occasionally urgent, issues in the most effective ways. Should the need arise, we can assist clients with crisis communication efforts.
Technology transfer – Medical, biotechnology and information systems research and development is a major activity for many Maryland universities, medical centers and defense contractors. Womble Carlyle can assist institutions with obtaining research grants and contracts and in commercializing their discoveries.
Life Sciences Funding – Maryland, particularly in the I-270 Corridor, has become a thriving hub of Life Sciences/Biotech activity. Those businesses range in size from start-ups to international corporations. Our Maryland team has unique access to decision-makers in that state at a wide variety of funding sources, so we are poised to help clients at all stages of their business development.
Real Estate Development – The Baltimore-area commercial real estate market is primed for a major upswing, with an influx of jobs and new development in the life sciences industry and other high-tech sectors. Womble Carlyle offers all relevant legal services for real estate lenders, developers and construction companies. We are particularly adept in undertaking at sensitive negotiations with state, local and federal officials on environmentally sensitive projects, in advising our clients about "green" construction and in promoting mixed-used development.
Health Care, Communications, Environmental and Gaming Advocacy – Our strong connections with lawmakers allows us to skillfully and effectively advocate for our clients in these highly regulated sectors.
