Get the certification you need to help your business grow

Small businesses face numerous barriers when trying to break into markets dominated by large companies. The demand for diversity creates opportunities MBE, WBE, VBE, LGBTE or DBE certified businesses, allowing them to overcome these barriers and gain access to government and large corporate projects.

Obtaining a certification can be a complex and demanding process. The attorneys and paralegals at Navigant Law have significant experience representing and advising businesses through the certification process by:

  • Determining the appropriate certifying agency.
  • Structuring your company to meet the guidelines for a successful application.
  • Completing or reviewing the application and exhibits needed for the application.
  • Providing assistance with follow up questions/requests from the certifying agency.
  • Evaluating an appeal and any decisions to decertify from the certifying agency.

DBE Structuring and Joint Ventures

Disadvantaged Business Enterprises are limited by revenue and personal net worth caps. Businesses that grow beyond these caps lose their DBE certification – and, by default, their lucrative DBE contracts.

Navigant Law works with our clients to create business structures that allow you to maximize your growth opportunities and lessen the impact of these caps. We provide you with proactive strategic advice related to business and joint venture structuring.
