Insights: Alerts KT is...Collaboration · Client-Oriented
Kilpatrick Townsend brings a long history of attorney collaboration. By promoting a more cooperative environment, our attorneys frequently engage in cross-practice conversations that inevitably inspire innovation and build trust, confidence, and professional chemistry. This, in turn, leads to a deeper understanding of client issues and business goals, creating more holistic and sophisticated advice and the ability to quickly assemble the right work teams. Further, encouraging more collaboration enhances client relationships through greater productivity, quality controls, consistencies, efficiencies, and often lower client costs.
In the spirit of collaboration, our Government Enforcement & Investigations Team recently referred one of its clients to the Government Contracts Group regarding a bid protest worth more than $25 million. Working together, the Government Contracts Group quickly developed a full rebuttal strategy that soon won the contract for the client. This collaborative effort not only received high client praise — especially since we delivered timely, on-budget guidance — but it also generated additional protest work, training requests, and regular calls for advice from the client’s in-house counsel.

While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.

If you do convey information, you recognize that we may review and disclose the information, and you agree that even if you regard the information as highly confidential and even if it is transmitted in a good faith effort to retain us, such a review does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could be used against you.
