O'Donoghue & O'Donoghue LLP has been active in assisting labor organizations in their efforts to to adopt and change federal and statelaws to better serve working Americans. Over the years, O'Donoghue attorneys have developed "Best Value Contracting" legislation, regulations and policies that, when enacted, require government agencies to award construction contracts to bidders that have the best contracting records, provide the best wages and fringe benefits for their workers, and have the best safety records, in other words "best value" contractors.

O'Donoghue attorneys also draft and revise codes for various building and construction trades, working on behalf of the Firm's labor union clients. These codes ensure that the workers who build America are highly trained, skilled craftspersons.
