Experienced in most areas of civil litigation, Scott has a particular interest in housing and property-related matters, consumer rights disputes and personal injury cases. He is always prepared to appear in committal applications at short notice, often arising from cases of anti-social behaviour in a housing context. Scott is also uniquely placed in his practice for instructions in quasi-crime cases, such as health and safety breaches and regulatory/licencing breaches.

Scott is very much a ‘let’s get business done’ advocate, with an eye for the key points in any case in which he is instructed. He is renowned for his concise and considered legal argument, skilfully interwoven with his knowledge and deployment of the Civil Procedure Rules. He is grounded but confident – robust with his advice, yet understanding of his client’s concerns in an environment often alien to them. Scott is an experienced junior who likes to make every word count in court and in conference, leaving wafflers and filibusterers in his wake.

Scott will accept instructions on a conditional fee arrangement (CFA), with uplift, in suitable cases.

Scott has recently branched out into Matrimonial Finance work, consolidating his experience in negotiating significant financial settlements in commercial cases with his skills as an accredited mediator to achieve the best possible outcomes for his clients.

Scott is regulated by the Bar Standards Board.
