Client Comments

  • "Scott is a perfect example of the "best of breed" that you can find at a big firm like Perkins. He has a couple decades of experience, specifically litigating intellectual property cases. He clearly knows which facts are going to be relevant and how to structure his work and his thinking to best highlight those facts. He can distill everything that a client knows and feels into a worthwhile litigation strategy. More important, he is also a great coach for clients who want to understand more about the internal workings of IP law."
