Getting Your Foot in the Door
Our experienced lawyers can help structure your business to qualify for Federal Illinois (and other state’s) Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Women Business Enterprise (WBE) certifications and create eligibility for “set-aside” procurements. These designations can substantially increase the visibility of a small business. For example, contractors doing business with the federal government use the MBE/WBE directory to find qualified MBE/WBE companies in order to fulfill contract requirements.
If you are a women-owned or minority business enterprise, we can help you get the certification to enjoy the benefits of that status. At the Chicago, Illinois, business law firm Griffith & Jacobson, LLC, we know the government contracting regulations backward and forward.
