Matt Schoonover and Matt Moriarty have practiced federal government contracting law together since 2015. Their shared love of the work of practicing law, crafting the right turn of phrase, college basketball, and—more than anything—enjoyment of 1990s comedies gave them a shared sense of purpose.
In 2020, they formed their own firm together based on the principles of hard work, dedication to client services, and—of course—enjoyment of college basketball. Their colleagues Ian Patterson and John Mattox joined them in this endeavor, sharing these goals.
Schoonover & Moriarty assists clients with all legal aspects associated with selling goods and services to the United States government. That includes all federal contracting programs, size and affiliation concerns, various teaming methods, bid protests, size and status protests, requests for equitable adjustment, claims and appeals, and more.
Schoonover & Moriarty's attorneys have experience practicing at all venues relevant to federal contractors—from the Government Accountability Office, to the Court and Federal Claims and Federal Circuit Court of Appeals. They are also thought leaders in the field, having authored handbooks on federal contracting issues, served on editorial boards for procurement publications, and been invited to speak on behalf of small businesses before Congress and at industry events across the country.
