His clients at times need specific assistance with criminal, tax, bankruptcy, or regulatory issues, and Scott has a unique ability to lead teams and anticipate and manage the variety of challenges that arise when clients have intersecting problems.

Scott's practice includes crisis management for clients in sensitive situations, who face risks to their reputations, careers, and financial resources. He is available around the clock to individuals and entities in crisis. His expertise in negotiation, media relations, and both short and long-term strategic planning have been instrumental to protecting his clients' interests, often in matters requiring delicate, swift attention and absolute discretion.
