Government Contract Claims, Dispute Litigation and Consulting

We don’t regularly review, but do so appreciatively because of an exceptional experience: We contacted Mr. Watson with a federal procurement matter. He responded immediately and even offered to make a few calls. More, he suggested a reasonable direct response methodology as an alternate to drawing lines in the sand and legal bills. It was sound advice, gladly given without a retainer in the name of relationship building.

Our agency is extremely appreciative of the consultation and direction that Theodore Watson and his associates have provided us over the last five years regarding several areas of government contracting, including SBA and FOIA. 

Mr. Watson has a distinct talent to immediately get to the heart of each issue and provide timely and concise guidance.  In addition, his background as a former government Contracting official provides a unique insight into the mechanisms of government contracting.

CPARS and Contractor Past Performance Disputes

I am grateful to Mr. Watson for the legal services provided to us in support of the CPARS evaluation issue we experienced with our Federal customer. As a small business, we were unfamiliar with the process for contesting the unfair performance evaluation ratings our firm received. Mr. Watson assisted us with drafting a well-developed rebuttal of the Agency’s assertions. He gave a detailed briefing and recommendations for navigating the process for challenging the Agency’s biased claims. This was our first time experiencing this issue and we are thankful for Mr. Watson’s timely and thoughtful guidance. His understanding of the legal process for disputing such claims was instrumental to getting our CPARS evaluation revised.

8(a) Certification 

Working with Theo Watson and his group was the most professional and knowledgeable group I had the pleasure to work with on getting our 8a package ready which resulted in getting our package approved with very minimal issues.

Theo’s team was very responsive to all of my questions and provided me with not just answers but with knowledge that helped me understand why certain things were being asked of me by the SBA which helped in my ability to provide the correct answers back to the SBA one time versus multiple conversations.

I continue to lean on Theo and his staff as I grow in the SBA and government arena for their expertise in making sure that I fully understand what are the correct ways to do business with the government. I would wholeheartedly recommend Theo and his organization to any small business that is looking for an organization that understands the processes and contracts with working with the Federal Government.

8(a) Certification

“Our firm contacted Theodore Watson and Associates with an uphill battle against the Small Business Administration (SBA). Mr. Watson and Mr. Ford stated as such but were eager to take on such a challenge. The firm meticulously worked each facet of our argument resulting in an overturn of the SBA’s decision. Our company is now an 8(a) certified entity thanks to the expertise and strategy implemented by Mr. Ford.”

8(a) Certification

“Watson and Associates provided the type of legal insight I was looking for versus other companies that would provide standard templates and offer little if you ran into a major challenge. Thankfully Peter at the firm helped us construct a 8a certification package that focused on key areas and was solid enough for us to be certified on the first attempt. Thanks for their professionalism as well.”
