Defense and Critical Technologies

BGR’s bipartisan Defense and Critical Technologies Practice represents clients on a wide range of issues spanning traditional defense and homeland security, space and intelligence, full-spectrum cyber and global supply chain issues, both domestically and internationally. These efforts touch Congress and the Administration on behalf of major defense and aerospace companies, cutting edge emerging technology start-ups, manufacturing suppliers, government service providers, veterans’ organizations, and nonprofits. From shaping policy and federal budgetary issues to acquisition authorizations and appropriations, BGR’s insider understanding of national security issues and unparalleled network of government relationships deliver results. 

BGR also understands that emerging critical technologies are driving the future of national security innovation and the global commercial economy.  The dual-purpose nature of artificial intelligence/machine learning, quantum science, microelectronics, hypersonics, directed energy, biotechnology, cybersecurity, big data analytics, space technology, and unmanned systems are accelerating global investment and growth. The BGR team provides subject matter expertise, real-time intelligence, and personal relationships to influence the full spectrum of decision-makers, helping companies that are disrupting the status quo, and enabling their growth and success.

Today’s companies providing national security capabilities, space systems, healthcare for veterans, military construction, government services, and logistics operations require advocacy for diverse domestic and international business models that span multiple sectors.  The ability for companies to cultivate strategic relationships, shape authorizations and appropriations language across multiple pieces of legislation, and expand corporate brand awareness will be game changers.  BGR’s Defense and Critical Technologies practice works collaboratively with experts throughout the firm to meet client needs.
