Why Bradford Edwards & Varlack LLP
Bradford Edwards & Varlack LLP performs as a business advisory organization rather than a traditional law firm. We recognize that clients’ problems are layered and require integrated solutions whether they are legal, commercial, financial, or their liberty is at risk. We have assembled a diverse team with different talents, experiences and skills who stand ready to tackle clients’ problems. We are obsessed with winning, and aggressively advocate for our clients through rigorous analysis balanced against commercial, political and strategic realities.
We put our clients’ interests first. We set clear goals at the outset of an engagement and work with clients to define “success” and then deploy resources efficiently and innovatively to minimize disruption to their businesses. We offer pre-litigation counseling and advice and seek a consensual resolution, if appropriate. From the outset of each engagement, however, we prepare as if the investigation or dispute will be resolved in an adversarial proceeding before a court, a regulatory proceeding, or an arbitration panel. We train our sights on the critical facts and issues that matter most to our clients at trial rather than pre-trial machinations to gain leverage.
Innovative Fee Arrangements
We understand that clients value predictability in their legal spend that is connected to the outcome of their legal matters. We offer innovative pricing models, including blended rates, fixed price with success fees, and contingent arrangements. We also are adept in negotiating and obtaining third-party financing for litigation when appropriate.

Our Commitment: True Diversity, In All Forms.
Diversity matters. It fosters excellence and helps us win for our clients. We founded Bradford Edwards & Varlack LLP by embracing the strength of diversity. After spending decades working at highly-regarded national law firms, government agencies, and multinational corporations, we have created a firm at which lawyers can practice at the highest level while knowing that their unique perspective is highly-valued rather than merely tolerated. We take a broad view of diversity, understanding it to encompass race and ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, military status, as well as differences in physical ability, identity, thought. We celebrate these differences and harness them to seize new opportunities and achieve great results for our clients.
We are committed to making Bradford Edwards & Varlack LLP a place where we empower individuals to be fully authentic. Our pursuit of diversity improves our creativity, fosters innovation, allows better insights to surface, and strengthens our strategic advice. With diversity as a core value, we best serve our people and our clients.
