Scott Entin has over 15 years of complex litigation experience. Scott understands how to effectively manage large-scale, complex and high-stakes matters through trial and appeal. Through his practice, Scott protects the environment, people and their property from toxic industrial pollution; represents government and individuals in fraud and consumer protection cases; and fights against discrimination and civil rights abuses. He represents advocacy groups, individuals, state governments and classes across the country. Scott listens to his clients and works with them to find lasting solutions to their problems.

  • Environmental Litigation

    Along with MBG partner Sarah Siskind, Scott leads the firm’s Pollution and Environmental Litigation practice. That practice protects people and their property from industrial polluters. Scott was appointed co-lead class counsel to represent a class of thousands of current and former residents in an action advancing common law and statutory nuisance, negligence, and trespass claims to address air emissions from an industrial polluter in Muscatine, Iowa. His representation resulted in a $51.5 million settlement, which provided significant financial payments to class members and required the defendant to spend millions of dollars upgrading its pollution controls. Scott has worked with Sierra Club as trial counsel in Clean Air Act litigation, and has presented at one of its national conferences. He has counseled, and represented, individuals and advocacy groups regarding air and water contamination issues. Currently, Scott represents numerous individual plaintiffs suing a medical sterilization company for injuries caused by its excessive and dangerous air emissions, and a putative class of more than 120,000 residents suing a steel manufacturer for infringing on their property rights.

  • State Government Representation

    For more than 10 years, Scott served as counsel to eight states in the Average Wholesale Price (“AWP”) litigation and related litigation against dozens of drug manufacturers and other entities under consumer protection laws, Medicaid fraud, false advertising statutes, and state false claims acts. That litigation sought redress for damage to state Medicaid programs caused by the publication of false and deceptive drug prices. Scott was involved in every aspect of AWP litigation from discovery to participating in numerous trials. He worked closely with state clients and witnesses, and oversaw large-scale discovery. Together with the rest of the MBG team, Scott’s efforts resulted in nearly $1.2 billion in settlements and judgments after trial.

  • Civil Rights & Employment Litigation

    Scott represents both plaintiffs and defendants in discrimination cases and employment disputes, including national class actions and individual cases before state, local and federal agencies. He represents individuals and groups facing sexual harassment and discrimination at work based on race, national origin, sex, age and disability. Scott also has represented clients in wage, hour and overtime disputes, and has expertise in all types of contract disputes, including those concerning severance, employee benefits, non-compete, and non-solicitation agreements.

  • Healthcare Litigation

    Since the beginning of his professional career, Scott has worked with hospitals and physician clients on a variety of healthcare law topics. He has extensive and successful jury trial experience in these cases, and has advised hospital clients on affiliation and disaffiliation issues, third-party payor litigation and other medicolegal claims.
