Since its founding, Chapman and Cutler LLP has been one of the most experienced law firms in the nation for public and corporate finance. The Federal Government Finance Group is a natural extension of the firm's traditional public and corporate finance practice. Chapman and Cutler regularly represents underwriters, institutional investors and federal contractors in numerous federal government finance transactions of varying size and complexity, including transactions that involve the General Services Administration, the United States Department of Energy, the United States Department of Defense, the United States Armed Forces, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the United States Postal Service and other federal offices and agencies.

Members of the Federal Government Finance Group regularly review and analyze the federal governmental office or agency that is party to the particular transaction to determine whether its related obligation is a full faith and credit obligation of the federal government or whether such obligation will be subject to annual appropriation. The Federal Government Finance Practice Group also regularly provides guidance to participants of federal government finance transactions regarding the complex intricacies of the Federal Acquisition Regulations and reviews federal government transactions for compliance with the Assignment of Claims Act. In addition, the Federal Government Finance Practice Group reviews federal government transactions to determine whether the securities being offered are exempt securities under the Securities Act of 1933 (as amended).

One of the strengths of our Federal Government Finance Group is the dedication of the attorneys who devote substantial time and energy to this practice area. The breadth of experience of the attorneys who comprise the Federal Government Finance Group makes them well suited to offer first class legal advice to participants in federal government finance transactions of all types.
