Scott has lived and breathed the construction industry since he was a small child. As an architect, Scott’s father gave him a glimpse into a world of large, complex projects and high risks. Scott was inspired to obtain a degree in engineering before enrolling in law school, where he soon found that his family’s generations of construction experience and his on-the-job knowledge would pair perfectly with legal expertise. Even working as corporate counsel, he taps into his vast experience on the job site as well as the boardroom.
Licensed in both Arizona and Illinois, Scott is a proven leader with over 23 years of professional experience leading businesses and representing their legal interests. Through his experiences as a senior executive with a large, publicly-traded Fortune 500 companies and two national Am Law 100 law firms, he has solid leadership, business, and legal know-how. Scott graduated from Arizona State University with a B.S. (in 1993) and an M.S. (in 1995) in Construction Engineering. He graduated from DePaul University College of Law in 2001.
Scott is a Fellow of the Construction Lawyers Society of America and a member of the American Bar Association and ABA’s Forum on the Construction Industry.
