Richard Arnholt advises companies, large and small, on the complex rules and regulations applicable to grants and contracts from federal and state governmental entities. In an era of increased budgetary pressures for contractors, Richard focuses his practice on providing practical business and legal guidance to help clients efficiently navigate the minefield of government procurement and grant regulations. Richard has experience assisting companies and individuals faced with potential exclusion from federal contracting by advising them through suspension and debarment proceedings before various government agencies, including the U.S. Army, Air Force and Navy; Defense Logistics Agency; Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); General Services Administration; and Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
