Scott defends companies facing consumer class action lawsuits and commercial litigation in federal and state courts across the country.
Scott has extensive experience defending cases alleging consumer fraud, product defect, false advertising, unfair trade practices and various state and federal consumer protection laws. He has first- and second-chaired jury trials in federal and state courts throughout Missouri and Illinois, and taken and defended the depositions of corporate executives, physicians, industry experts, and other key witnesses.
In his previous role at a leading plaintiffs' firm, Scott represented classes and individuals in mass tort actions involving tens of thousands of claimants and settlements of nearly $1 billion. Scott was also selected for a national leadership team of attorneys to manage multi-district litigation over a pharmaceutical drug.
Scott draws on his experience representing clients in complex class and mass tort actions to craft effective litigation strategies for clients and work toward the effective resolution of claims.
Although we would like to hear from you, we cannot represent you until we know that doing so will not create a conflict of interest. Also, we cannot treat unsolicited information as confidential. Accordingly, please do not send us any information about any matter that may involve you until you receive a written statement from us that we represent you (an ‘engagement letter’).
By clicking the ACCEPT button, you agree that we may review any information you transmit to us. You recognize that our review of your information, even if you submitted it in a good faith effort to retain us, and, further, even if you consider it confidential, does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could and will be used against you. Please click the ACCEPT button if you understand and accept the foregoing statement and wish to proceed.
