WBE Contracting and Subcontracting

In October 2014, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo increased M/WBE state contracting utilization to 30 percent for all contracts issued by state agencies and authorities. The 30 percent goal represents the highest such target in the nation for any state government.

As a certified WBE, our Firm is able to help state agencies and authorities, as well as prime contractors meet the goals set forth on such contracts. Our extensive experience in a broad range of legal fields paired with our WBE certification allows us to satisfy diversity needs without compromising results or the quality of legal services that our clients expect and deserve.
