Office of General Counsel, 2011-2020
A former deputy general counsel for a private university, Scott understands the unique challenges that our higher education clients face and how to best help them achieve their goals.
Drawing on his experience in a university general counsel's office, Scott brings a practical, ‘in-house' perspective to the complex legal, regulatory, and compliance issues of our clients. He knows that each institution has its own priorities, goals, and challenges, and that legal advice must be tailored to fit the culture and business model of the client.
Scott is well-versed in navigating all types of day-to-day and long term legal demands facing colleges and universities, but has particular experience in the areas of discrimination law, student affairs, contract drafting and review, and policy development. He also has experience with crisis management, advising on reputational concerns, and implementing controls to mitigate risk.
While in law school, Scott was a law clerk in the Department of Education's Office of the General Counsel.
