    Scott focused his career primarily on complex commercial litigation at the trial and appellate levels in both federal and state courts. Scott has successfully resolved cases involving the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (commonly referred to as the “RICO Act” or “RICO”), the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”), Medicare, healthcare, insurance, regulated industries, oil and gas, real estate, and personal injury. Scott has also litigated cases involving patent infringement, antitrust and trade secret issues. And he has represented individual and small companies. Courts in Texas and federal court’s have appointed Scott to serve as lead counsel in several large class actions. He started his class action work representing large businesses alleging that their workers’ compensation insurers overcharged them for their workers" compensation insurance. He also has represented classes in cases involving Corporate Owned Life Insurance (also known as COLI or, unfortunately, 'dead peasant' or 'janitor' insurance). The defendants included Wal-Mart and Fina. Scott represents a class against Stream Energy and its marketing arm, Ignite, alleging that they and others operate their business as a pyramid scheme in violation of the RICO Act. In 2001, the Texas Lawyer recognized Scott as one of "40 under 40 " judges, lawyers and law professors "across the state whose accomplishments distinguish them among their peers." Scott has been listed by Thompson and Reuters as a "Texas Super Lawyer" each year from 2003 to 2009. In 2008, Forbes featured Scott for his contingent fee work for businesses. In 2012, H Texas Magazine recognized Scott in their list of Houston's Top Lawyers. He has received other recognitions from many publications. Scott pursues his clients" cases with diligence and vigor while usually remaining on professional and even friendly terms with his opposing counsel, something that is, unfortunately, rare in today legal world. Taking a few cases allows Scott to give the attention to his clients’ needs. He frequently has worked with other much larger law firms to seek the best representation of his clients’ interests.

    On behalf of a Texan, Scott sued Stream, Ignite and other defendants under RICO. The defendants first defended the scheme, not for its legitimacy, but that claims were subject to arbitration rather than litigation in district court. The defendants prevailed in the district court, but Scott defeated that claim before the Fifth Circuit. After some discovery, the district court certified a class, a decision now on an en banc appeal to the Fifth Circuit, appointing Scott as one of the class’ lead counsel. The case continues...
