I worked with Scott during my time at Townsend, Townsend and Crew, an intellectual property boutique law firm in San Diego that focused on providing clients with the best attorneys for protecting their inventions. Scott made the transition from working in a science laboratory to working at a patent law firm in record time. His experiences in helping a wide variety of different clients, each with their own unique technologies and intellectual property problems, has made him a valuable patent attorney.
