Scott joined the firm in 1991. He focuses his practice entirely in the environmental law and toxic tort areas, and counsels business and industrial clients in all aspects of environmental law compliance. The scope of Scott’s practice includes compliance counseling on all regulatory programs, permitting, environmental auditing, due diligence, counseling regarding the environmental implications of business and real estate transactions, and litigation before all State and Federal courts and administrative hearing boards. Scott’s practice covers the full spectrum of environmental law issues facing industrial and business concerns, including solid waste, water quality, air quality, storage tanks, Superfund, sewage treatment and land development, water supply, and wetland issues. He also defends toxic tort cases alleging personal injury, wrongful death, or increased risk of disease from environmental exposure to toxic substances, including mold, gasoline (benzene and MTBE), and chlorinated solvents. 

Scott lectures regularly on behalf of various organizations, including the Pennsylvania Bar Institute and Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry, and often serves as the course planner for key legal seminars.
