Scott is dedicated to helping his clients recover their insurance benefits. By taking on matters that are often difficult, complicated and untested – including two of the first cyberinsurance coverage cases in the country – Scott works to design a creative, optimized path to problem solving that enhances their chances of recovery. Effective, thorough and practical, Scott is valued by clients and colleagues alike for his depth and breadth of knowledge and experience in insurance law, and for finding the right solution to each client’s distinct problem.
In one of his most significant matters, Scott served co-lead counsel in a landmark class action trial, the first case of its kind to determine that insurance coverage was available, without aggregate limits, for thousands of asbestos claims. In addition, Scott represents clients facing cybersecurity, data breach, cyberattack, privacy and other technology-related claims. He focused on insurance coverage for cybersecurity and privacy risks in 2008, allowing him to join his long-standing interest in technology with a new area of insurance. Since that time, he has litigated some of the few court cases regarding the scope of coverage available under cyber insurance policies, as well as coverage under other insurance policies for losses due to cyberattacks, privacy events, and wire and computer frauds.
