What Our Boutique Law Firm Stands For
As a boutique government contract law firm and aggressive advocates for our clients, we understand you want attorneys that are straightforward 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.
Watson & Associates, LLC was established in 2003. 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.

Appearance before legal forums
Since 2003, the firm’s government contracts practice has resolved many contracting disputes for clients outside of litigation. However, we have also aggressively pursued our clients’ interests in various forums such as the Small Business Administration, Government Accountability Office for bid protests, the US Court of Federal Claims, SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals and the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
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.
