Joint Ventures

Joint Ventures can be formed among small business. Generally, any joint venture (JV) to pursue a Government contract is affiliated and therefore one will have to combine the annual receipts (or employees) to determine the size of the JV and its eligibility to pursue a set-aside contract. There are exceptions to the affiliation rule that pertain to small businesses joint ventures, and the Mentor Protégé program. For a detailed chart listing these go to:

Of course large and small businesses that merely wish to combine their collective capabilities and financial strengths may form an 8(a) Mentor Protégé JV for other reasons but a solid agreement is important as it is still a contract and binding and legal.

Skilled Senior Attorneys


The firm provides skilled representation to clients under the supervision of skilled senior attorneys. The firm is well established such that its most Senior Attorney, Mr. Fred Walker passed away in the recent past but left behind his knowledge and integrity as examples of the way, we feel, a law firm should conduct itself. The younger members have assumed leadership of the firm (50-70 years of age) and exemplify the ethics and skill which Fred Walker will be forever remembered for at the firm.
