Scott is a trial and appellate lawyer with clients located throughout Iowa. Scott’s general litigation practice includes matters involving a broad array of issues, such as business disputes, corporate fraud and misconduct, intellectual property, constitutional rights, personal injury and consumer protection.
Scott prepares each case as if it is going to trial. Once he takes on a case, he pours himself into the facts and the law to develop and implement winning trial strategies. Scott’s experience handling cases involving complex factual scenarios, novel legal issues and cutting-edge technologies sets him apart. Although prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome, Scott has successfully represented clients in cases of all sizes and degrees of complexity, including successfully trying multiple cases to verdict, obtaining an outright dismissal for a homeless man against a predatory lender, developing successful legal strategies to exclude key expert witness testimony in a nine-figure intellectual property case, crafting and implementing winning trial strategies for damages in high-stakes and bet-the-company intellectual property and business tort cases.
Scott’s appellate practice encompasses the entire spectrum of legal issues in state and federal appellate courts. Scott first obtained appellate experience immediately after law school by focusing exclusively on appeals for two years during his clerkship with Justice Appel of the Iowa Supreme Court. Both during his clerkship and since, Scott has gained significant experience wrestling with complex, novel appellate issues and has an inside perspective of the appellate process, which has proven critical to successful appellate strategies in state and federal appellate courts.
