Scott defends large corporations, including major auto manufacturers, in class actions filed across the country.
As a member of a highly experienced trial team that defends one of the world's largest auto makers, Scott provides on-the-ground support during all phases of litigation. He takes depositions, oversees discovery, and helps companies respond to product defect, consumer fraud, and breach of warranty claims, as well as allegations of unfair trade practices and false advertising, and violations of other federal and state consumer protection laws. Scott frequently works alongside company engineers and other expert witnesses to inspect vehicles and alleged product defects, and use the findings to develop effective trial strategies.
Before joining Thompson Coburn, Scott served as a litigator with an insurance defense firm, where he defended clients in litigation involving contract disputes, transportation issues, business damages, and personal injury and premises liability claims. He has first- and second-chaired a number of trials in federal and state courts throughout Missouri and Illinois, and led the depositions of plaintiffs, doctors, engineers, and other professionals.
