What Makes Our Approach Unique?
We offer over 30 years of experience in analyzing various government contracting disputes and court decisions. Fact: Many contractors, both large and small, fail to achieve desired results because their attorneys only possess surface knowledge of various governing statutes. Our firm comprehends the inner workings of government contracting agencies. Because we pay attention to the details, our conversations are more impactful with CEOs and corporate executives.
At Watson & Associates, many of our key players have worked on the other side. Our clients find this experience valuable because we understand the internal workings and legal discretion given to agency officials allows our attorneys to plan more skillful and strategic approaches to litigation, appeals and negotiations.
Clients who have worked with larger law firms in the past and hire us, appreciate our understanding of the big picture. We know the responsibilities of end users, agency Small Business Specialists, Contracting Officer Representatives and Source Selections teams. For this reason, we have proven to attain more favorable outcomes.
By providing candid advice to our clients as well as keeping them heavily involved throughout the representation process, clients repeatedly choose us simply because we accomplish results.

What We Stand For
As advocates for our clients, we understand you want attorneys that are straight forward and can give you clear direction to resolve a specific problem. When the facts don’t support the ideal results our clients may seek, we tell them so. However, we utilize various strategies and evaluate possibilities for getting more options on the table.
When we realize the federal government has violated the law or abused its discretion, we find the most cost -efficient way to reach the client’s end goal. When there is no other choice but to litigate the dispute in court, we do so aggressively and to the fullest extent of the law.
We don’t waste your time. Not all legal disputes have to go to court. Sometimes it’s in our clients’ best interest to negotiate or provide courteous communication with either a government agency or a potential party to a lawsuit.
After retiring from the U.S. Air Force and subsequently overseeing Small Business Programs as well as being trained in federal contracting, the Firm’s founder, Theodore Watson, realized he could better serve clients by helping them to navigate through the confusion and complexity of federal government contracting. Theodore Watson established Watson & Associates in 2003.
While competing with large law firms and piercing the surface, we realized that clients wanted to hire attorneys based upon their ability to balance high-level customer service in conjunction with a clear understanding of how to play in the realm of federal procurement. As our workload increased, we expanded to the Washington, D.C. area in order to help clients from coast to coast.
Our primary focus at Watson & Associates is to first understand our clients’ business. Only then can we effectively advise them and move forward towards accomplishing successful results.
