Lanier Ford understands the unique problems facing small and disadvantaged businesses. Our attorneys share the goal of the federal Small Business Act (SBA), which promotes the growth of certain companies owned and operated by women, African-Americans, Native Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian-Pacific Americans.
Not only does Lanier Ford assists these companies in obtaining 8(a) status under the SBA, our attorneys advise these companies on the laws and regulations that allow them to obtain federal contracts on a limited-competition basis. Our attorneys regularly advise clients about—
- 8(a) applications.
- 8(a) compliance.
- 8(a) joint ventures.
- 8(a) protégé programs.
- HUB Zones (historically underutilized business zones).
- Women-owned small businesses (WOSB).
- Small, disadvantaged businesses (SDB).
