Partner, Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP
With nearly 25 years of experience, Scott has dealt with most employment law matters companies face. His mastery of the subject matter allows him to get to the heart of the issue quickly and provide sound, practical advice clients can trust. This, along with his drive to win, gives him a critical edge in the courtroom. Among his more notable cases, Scott successfully defended multinational chemical companies in one of the largest employee trade secrets cases to go to a jury trial, a case in which plaintiffs sought $800 million through economic espionage-type trade secrets claims. He also achieved a total bench trial victory for a multinational mining and chemical company in a large ERISA class action in which plaintiffs sought in excess of $200 million. In arbitration, he recently won more than $3.2 million, including $1.2 million in attorneys' fees, for an employer seeking to claw back signing bonuses from energy traders.
