Scott Dillon has built a broad-based business, tax and estate planning practice, with a particular emphasis on buying and selling businesses and the development and management of qualified retirement plans and employee benefits.

Scott’s clients include a wide variety of closely-held, family-owned businesses – from medical practices to construction firms. He drafts, reviews and negotiates sophisticated contracts, provides counsel on business planning, and designs and implements both qualified retirement and executive compensation plans.He is especially experienced in helping clients with business transitions and exit strategies. "The sale of a family business is frequently the largest transaction many of our clients will become involved in," Scott says. "They look to us for advice in structuring the deal and for counsel on business or tax issues, cash flow and retirement planning."

Scott is the only preferred North Carolina attorney for Pensco Trust Company, a firm serving as custodian for IRAs self-directed into real estate and closely held business interests.
