Understanding the opportunities and the risks associated with formation, negotiation, and implementation of corporate contracts is complex. Ensuring that there is a “meeting of the minds” and that the final document embodies the parties’ total agreement is paramount to mitigating future litigation risks.

United States Government and Commercial Contracts
International Government and Commercial Contracts

Conducting business with government markets presents unique contractual and administrative rules and regulations that must be adhered to in order to mitigate any risks or exposure to non-compliance. Fully understanding all the rules, regulations and procedures required to bid on, and execute government contracts can mean the difference between managing a profitable and thriving enterprise to one that is perpetually resolving unforeseen and costly mistakes.

We engaged the Heidt Law Firm to support our acquisition of a business. Mr. Heidt was extremely knowledgable and walked us through the process making sure to identify any risks associated with the deal. It was comforting to have someone with experience on your side. I highly recommend the firm.

Alex was a great help to me in my situation and is not afraid to speak up for your rights while being professional about it. I would highly recommend him for someone who will defend and speak up for your rights while maintaining a professional demeanor to all parties. This kind of candor with reserve to be professional the whole time to all parties is a honest, rare quality I look for. So for that he gets 5 stars from me and my highest recommendation of being a great attorney. So if you should have the need arise and need someone to fight for your rights in a professional manner then this is the person/lawyer for you.

"Mr. Heidt was personable, articulate and a good listener. He provided practical advice. Within the first 10 minutes of my visit it was clear my case was not going to make either of us rich. What I found remarkable about Mr. Heidt is that he continued to counsel me for more than 30 minutes giving me the opportunity to ask more questions to ensure I left his office fully informed. There is no question he knows the law, but what makes him particularly exceptional is that he cared about my circumstances."
