Scott’s sensitive approach with his clients – and their deadlines – maximizes their recovery potential.
As chair of the Bankruptcy Practice Group, Scott is responsible for creating and delivering innovative solutions for his clients. He works with vice presidents, managers, and supervisors of default servicing departments, along with their staff who handle the day-to-day servicing of borrowers who file for bankruptcy.
Scott’s clients, mid and large-size national lenders – servicing loans for some of the most well-known commercial and retail entities, are often juggling high volumes of accounts, and dealing with a regulatory environment that leaves little room for error. Practicing solely in bankruptcy for nearly 20 years, Scott is acutely aware of deadlines and filing requirements - and the significant impact they can have on recoveries for his clients. He has overseen hundreds of chapter 11 bankruptcy cases - ranging from negotiation of cash collateral orders and adequate protection agreements, to assumption and rejections of leases. Moreover, his experience in the prosecution of plan objections, analysis of Plans and Disclosure Statements, negotiation of cure amounts, and litigation of relief from stay motions and preference defense actions enables him to best defend his clients’ rights.
Scott is originally from Queens, New York, but he moved around several times during his childhood due to his father’s occupation, he too was an attorney, for a large global corporation. He lived in Connecticut, Rochester, New York, and Dallas, Texas before graduating high school. He was an avid soccer and basketball player, whose “claim to fame” was winning the USA Today National Championship in soccer during his senior year after completing a 24-0 season. Today, Scott calls Hudson, Ohio home with his wife, Robin, and his two children, Arden and Jason. He enjoys watching movies, playing tennis and soccer with his kids, listening to music (he’s a Pearl Jam fanatic), and traveling to the ocean and beach.
