I worked with Scott as outside counsel to my company. He provided excellent legal advice on a wide range of business matters from employment law, to mergers and acquisitions, to contracts. Our relationship lasted six years, until he helped me successfully sell the company.
Our company was a national brokerage in the insurance space and we dealt constantly with contracts and agreements. Besides his obvious skill in legal matters, Scott always provided sound and reliable business advice. Scott became a trusted advisor to me beyond just legal advisory services. He is able to place legal matters into business contexts and to help create real value for customers.
Scott is a creative and collaborative professional who is trustworthy and careful. We always agreed on ethical matters and Scott always did the "right thing" - - a sometimes rare trait in the world of legal advisors. This is not to say he isn't creative or aggressive. He successfully represented my firm in matters that went to trial (winning two judgments out of two attempts) and was a genius at creating "checks and balances" in commercial contracts.
I recommend Scott Lawson without hesitation.
