Practice areas
  1. Intellectual property
    My practice includes all aspects of intellectual property primarily emphasizing patents. I have been involved in patent procurement, both domestic and foreign, as well as licensing, opinion work including freedom to operate and invalidity. Litigation work includes assisting with pleadings, discovery, Markman briefs, motion practice, expert witness preparation. I am versatile in broad range of technologies spanning complex biotechnology, pharma, to electrical and mechanical systems.

  2. Internet
    My practice includes online take-down procedures for infringing goods, domain name disputes, cease and desist letters and assisting website owners and online marketers with developing privacy policies, terms of service, etc., dealing with piracy, e-commerce, as well as complying with applicable regulations.

If you have intellectual property or internet problems or concerns, and prefer to work with a skilled attorney who is intelligent, creative and candid - please give me a call to see if we might work together well.  I enjoy working closely with clients and being part of their problem solving team.  I genuinely like my clients, and will help you put your mid at ease with a solid approach to resolving your legal issues.  I am always willing to work with flat rates for projects to ensure you get no nasty billing surprises and can stick to your budget. 

If you are a busy professional with a creative inventor inside, but can't find the time to pursue your inventions - let me mentor you and show you how others have managed their busy professional careers, and personal relationships, and still capitalized on their ideas by working with the right people to get quality patent applications filed!

Scott was contacted in a pinch as someone was attempting to post my work and claim it as hers. I had written a draft letter to her, but it inadvertently might have caused me additional problems as my wording wasn't clear as I would have liked it to be, plus it may have sounded emotional instead of firm. Scott rewrote my draft. His revisions were powerful, to the point, used legal terminology to convey the seriousness of the situation, and yet remained gracious. Most appreciative was his timeliness in responding to me so that I could send the letter before the culprit had time to do anything. I recommend him very highly!

Great resource - thoughtful and creative
The patent group at our firm engaged Mr. Scioli for his advice and counsel, as well as for drafting and prosecution work, in connection with intellectual property in food and microbial technology. Mr. Scioli is extremely knowledgeable in both the technical and legal aspects of this type of work. He was able not only to devise creative ways to describe and claim our clients' inventions, but also to really dig into the details and provide us with excellent work product. He understood our clients' business and how the technology fit into it. In my view, Mr. Scioli really knows how to add value to a company through its intellectual property.

An incredible expert with massive integrity
We've used Scott more times than we can count, and each time he over delivers in value, council and guidance. We love to use Scott because he understands the mind of an entrepreneur and knows that a great attorney can be an ally, or a terrible deal killer. In Scott's case, he's the best ally you can ever have. I frequently lean on Scott when evaluating business decisions and strategic alliances. Each time he has pointed out the various paths and pros/cons of each. I have recommended him to all my key associates and they have been the better for it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Scott to any business owner looking for the best advice available.

My highest recommendation!
I hold Scott in the highest regard, both as a person and a skilled attorney. I have not only worked with him personally many times but referred many of my clients to him. I would only send a client to someone I trust completely, and I always receive rave reviews about Scott from my clients. He has worked with me on IP issues, various contracts, and stopping a company from infringing on my copyright. He has helped my clients with issues such as licensing and IP protection, among other things. He has greatly helped the high-profile authors and experts I referred to him as he has a keen understanding of the specific needs of these prominent professionals. I have worked very closely with many attorneys throughout my career, but none like Scott. His forethought, attention to detail, and compassion for his clients differentiate him and give me the confidence to continue to recommend him to my valued clients.

contract, negotiations, intellectual property, business acumen
Excellent lawyer, exceptional businessman and an extraordinary human being. Scott was involved in a variety of different & challenging situations. He helped save me money, aggravation and heartache. His insight into intellectual property, the internet and human beings makes the communication and understanding incredibly valuable. Scott is the 1st person I reach out to when I need insight into a variety of business challenges. No I'm not related, no he didn't ask for a puff piece, BUT YES I keep Scott on speed dial based on the value he brings. He's a busy guy and you may not be able to hire him but if you are able to become a client, he will take exceptional care of you and your situation. He has my highest recommendation, commendation and admiration.

Unauthorized Use of Imagery on Pinterest
I was being harassed by a collection company looking to bully me into a payment for Unauthorized Use of Imagery on my website via a Pinterest plug in feed. Not only did Scott know exactly what these scammers were up to but he took action against them in less than an hour. He was as nice as can be when we spoke and he did what he said he would do. What else could you ask for??

Scioli for IP!
I met Scott when he worked at a well-known IP firm in Philadelphia. He and the team were helpful guiding my thinking and, though I did not engage them, after a bit I found Scott working at his own firm. He remembered me and my IP goals and worked hard to orient my product to meet the requirements of the global IP process - initially through a provisional application and subsequently through full global submissions. I especfially found his writing skills helpful. One must understand the entire concept before writing about it can be clear. His clarity revealed a deep understanding and that clarity allowed the application to perfectly describe my method.

Timely and Thorough
I hired Scott regarding licensing and intellectual property transfer online, which carried some trademark implications as well. There were a number of hidden twists and turns which required significant attention to details. He helped guide me though some required decisions and ensured that the transaction details and contract were complete for maximum results and protection. I had previously consulted with him on a different IP matter, which was also resolved in a timely, personalized, and thorough manner. He's my go-to guy for online IP issues!

Professionally, Scott Scioli is the best attoreny I have hired, and personally he has become my friend.
Scott is really the best attorney I have ever hired, and I have dealt with some 20 or so attorneys (some hired, some not) for different legal issues. Professionally in terms quality of work in his field of expertise -- Intellectual Property, Scott is a top-notch attorney, being extremely knowledgeable, helpful, thorough, precise, and detail-oriented – the kind that leaves no stones unturned. Personally in terms of how he treats his client, Scott is very personable, approachable, generous, and warm – qualities that, unfortunately, not many attorneys can effortlessly express to their clients like Scott can. He is the rare kind of attorney whom you can call “my friend,” and I have called him such many times.

There really are not enough positive words to describe our gratitude and appreciation for Attorney Scott Scioli - not only is he capable and knowledgeable but equally attentive and available in dealing with our [his clients] needs. Having access to many attorneys, I and my husband have decided no other person but Scott Scioli will be at our side during legal struggles and successful endeavors. We feel lucky and very blessed to have met this man! Sincerely, Tereza
