Scott has what white collar defendants need most: a deep understanding of how the system works. An Assistant U.S. Attorney for over a decade, he combines that knowledge with formidable courtroom skill to provide clients with a defense that is equal parts judicious and tenacious.
Scott focuses his practice on matters of government, securities, financial, and health care fraud; Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations; and civil business litigation, leveraging the experience gained from more than 10 years in the U.S. Attorney's Office in Newark, New Jersey. He investigated and prosecuted a broad range of white collar criminal offenses there, serving as Deputy Chief of the Economic Crimes Unit and as a member of the Health Care & Government Fraud Unit. He also prosecuted numerous cases involving cybercrime, identity theft, and intellectual property-related offenses, as well as tax evasion and public corruption.
Scott also has significant civil litigation experience in both the private and public sectors.
Prior to joining the U.S. Attorney's Office, Scott completed federal clerkships under the Honorable Jose L. Linares and the Honorable Ronald J. Hedges, both of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey.
