It was just a mission statement. Forming Weiss Brown was something Scott had always envisioned, but it took a while for it to gel into something tangible.

It was not about leaving “big law,” but more about helping clients on his own terms – and terms they like better. Whether coming to agreement in a transaction or resolving a business dispute, Scott believes “human issues” often hold the key to unlocking problems. He looks forward to meeting new personalities and enjoys working together to achieve a common goal.
