Scott is an experienced employment and labor attorney who regularly represents clients in court and before federal and state agencies in cases involving claims of employment discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, wage-hour violations, breach of contract, and litigation involving non-competition and trade secret matters.
His broad experience as both in-house and outside counsel to employers allows Scott to capably guide clients through the full spectrum of issues that arise from the employment relationship. Although he proactively focuses on providing practical advice to avoid expensive litigation and to quickly achieve clients’ business objectives, when litigation cannot be prevented, Scott brings to bear his extensive employment litigation experience, which includes successfully trying cases through jury verdict.
Scott’s practice includes serving the legal needs of executives, professionals (including physicians and dentists), and consultants as they enter and exit employment, partnership, and independent contractor relationships.
Scott has been a featured speaker on employment and labor law topics at events hosted by Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education, the Boston Bar Association, Boston College Law School, Babson College, and MIT.
