  • Environmental Litigation

    Scott leads the firm’s Environmental Litigation practice with MBG partner Sarah Siskind, working to protect people and their property from industrial polluters. Scott was co-lead class counsel for a class of thousands of current and former residents in a nuisance, negligence, and trespass class action against an Iowa corn mill. The $51.5 settlement of that case secured significant payments to class members and required the defendant to spend millions upgrading its pollution controls.

  • 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.
