Our mission is to serve small and mid-size businesses and government contractors.
Every day, small and mid-size businesses face countless challenges. Finding affordable legal counsel, however, should not be one of them. Our primary goals are to help small and mid-size businesses and government contractors grow, resolve issues and navigate opportunities as they arise, and preserve relationships with agencies and business partners.
Matross Edwards started as a bid protest litigation boutique and since then, we have expanded our services to include a broad range of issues in business, government contracts, and cybersecurity law. As legal counselors, our clients trust us to help them navigate their most pressing problems and opportunities, whether on a per matter basis or as their outside general counsel.
Focus & Approach
As a government contracts and cybersecurity law firm with roots inside the DC Beltway, we are uniquely situated to provide distinctive legal services to government contractors. We aspire to be the "go-to" law firm for small and mid-size businesses with respect to their most significant and complex matters involving the laws and regulations of federal procurement, business, and cybersecurity.
We focus on matters that require extensive business and government contracts expertise, practical, cost-conscious solutions, and the preservation of our clients' existing relationships with agencies and partners. Our focus on building relationships also drives our approach to delivering legal services.
Our approach is simple:
First, we listen. The world of business and government contracting is complex, so we take time to understand the problem. Second, we tailor. Each client matter is unique, so we take a holistic approach in developing our strategy (this may include, for example, advising a client to walk away from filing a bid protest). Third, we collaborate. We have found that our clients are best served when a team of attorneys (and other professionals) collectively work to solve our clients' problems. Fourth, we focus on value. As a boutique law firm, we understand that our clients demand cost-conscious solutions, so we have adopted a flexible approach toward structuring our fee arrangements (e.g., hourly, flat rate, hybrid, monthly, contingency).
Lastly, we recognize that each new client or matter requires careful thought and attention, so we limit the number and type of matters we undertake (in addition to using a collaborative method). In some cases, we may decide the best approach is to co-counsel with or refer clients to a trusted law firm or other industry professional––both outside and inside the DC Beltway––whose particular experience would be beneficial to the client.
