- Scott’s practice includes many of the issues that business face today including:
- Because collection of accounts receivable is critical to profitability, Scott assists his clients by setting up procedures to ensure that bills get paid. If they don’t get paid, Scott works to help the client collect the money due, including, if necessary, filing lawsuits, garnishing bank accounts and otherwise seizing assets to satisfy the debt.
- Scott advises and represents his clients when disputes arise with vendors, customers, competitors and former employees, such as breach of contract, disparagement, breach of warranty, unfair competition and non-compete and non-solicitation issues.
Because employment issues are so important and a common problem that today’s businesses face, Scott regularly advises employers on:
- Wage and hour (overtime and minimum wage) laws and regulations

Along with a strong team of ERISA litigators at Tucker Arensberg, Scott has gone up against some of the largest law firms in the country and helped to secure over $100 million for the pension plans, money that will help to fund the retirement of thousands of workers.
