Host Karl speaks with Robert Scott of Scott & Scott LLP.

Robert Scott represents mid-market and large enterprise companies in software license transactions and disputes with major software publishers such as Adobe, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and SAP. He has defended over 250 software audit matters initiated by software piracy trade groups such as the BSA and SIIA. He is counsel to some of the world’s largest corporations, such as Schlumberger, PepsiCo, Iron Mountain and American Express, on information technology matters including intellectual property licensing, risk management, data privacy, and outsourcing.

As an attorney for 26 years, Robert Scott understands that law firms rarely get fans. Yet, that’s exactly what his firm, Scott & Scott, LLP, has in owners of managed services provider companies. In what Scott, who has spent 15 years serving MSPs, called an “exciting” time, the firm earned the enthusiasts through its cloud-based customer contracting solution. 


Believing that collaboration between legal and technology professionals is the key to solving complex business problems, Scott & Scott, LLP helps with software disputes, intellectual property matters, corporate transactions, copyright litigation, security and privacy issues and information technology. The firm is committed to monitoring developing technologies and emerging law – as technology evolves rapidly, so do laws governing it – in order to provide efficient, highly focused representation. In its 15 years of practice, Scott & Scott has handled more 500 engagements involving software license transactions and audit disputes against Microsoft, Oracle, IBM, Adobe, Autodesk, and many other companies. The firm has defended copyright infringement litigation by Microsoft, initiated wrongful termination litigation against Aptean, fought Adobe’s damage calculations, and filed declaratory judgment litigation against Autodesk. Scott & Scott’s client roster includes Fortune 500 companies and other leading companies of all sizes.
