Edward W. Floyd

In practicing law, I strive to thoroughly understand the client’s objectives for each matter and then to develop and implement an effective strategy for achieving those aims. My approach reflects my background of twenty-plus years of active and reserve military service. I employ a planning process, assertively implement the resulting plan, and always remain cognizant of the fact that the plan may need to change. What I enjoy most about that process is delivering successful results for the client.


Ed Floyd has 14 years of legal experience. Before the launch of our firm in 2017, Ed was a partner focused on maritime and international commodities trading law at a mid-sized NY firm, and before that, he practiced with a large, international firm. Ed’s maritime and trade practice is complemented by his own professional experience with logistical operations. He is a graduate of the US Naval Academy and subsequently served as an officer in the US Marine Corps (5+ years active duty, 15+ in the Reserves). As such, he has spent time at sea, participated in the loading of heavy equipment onto vessels, and coordinated complex logistical operations.
