Scott has specialized in high-stakes litigation and complex legal analysis throughout his career. He launched his legal career as a federal judicial law clerk at the district court and appellate levels. Scott then worked as a litigation associate in a New York law firm, where his practice focused on complex commercial litigation. From New York, Scott moved to Colorado where, after completing another federal clerkship, he began work representing government agencies, first as defense counsel for the City and County of Denver and then in a prosecutorial capacity for the City and then the state Attorney General’s Office. Scott has also worked as an adjunct associate professor of law and a university faculty member teaching legal writing, negotiation and oral advocacy to undergraduates and law students. Throughout his career, Scott has gained extensive experience in both civil and criminal matters and has often been engaged in the work of an investigator, developing facts, questioning witnesses, tracking down evidence, and objectively analyzing (and clearly writing about) complex facts. Scott’s background in the most demanding legal environments and academic settings has equipped him with an especially sophisticated ability to analyze and write – skills that ILG clients benefit from in using Scott for their investigations.
Scott has relished the opportunity to throw himself into investigations full time at ILG as his focus has always been in getting to the heart of what happened. As a Senior Investigator at ILG, Scott leads complex investigations and uses his superior analytical and writing skills to deliver sophisticated assessments of the facts and world-class reports to our clients. Scott’s practice areas include harassment, discrimination, retaliation and other misconduct, whether in the private or public workplaces or educational settings. In his time at ILG, Scott has conducted hundreds of investigative interviews in cases large and small.
He brings to the work a commitment to professional development. Scott holds AWI-CH status, having attended the Association of Workplace Investigators Training Institute. Scott has also attended training through the Association of Title IX Administrators (ATIXA) as part of ILG’s Title IX practice area, and has completed the 32-hour training program required to conduct EEO investigations for federal agencies. Furthermore, he also recently completed a two-day training program on trauma-informed interviewing techniques.
Scott recently relocated to central Pennsylvania with his family. In addition to his ongoing work with ILG, Scott teaches a course in employment law and policy at Penn State.
Scott graduated with honors from Brown University, holds a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from Rutgers University and graduated first in his class from the Fordham University School of Law. When not immersed in investigations or spending time with his family, Scott tries to sneak in the occasional swim or find a rare quiet moment to read.
