Scott R. Leah is a shareholder in the firm's Litigation Department and his practice includes almost all aspects of the legal issues facing today's small and mid-sized businesses.

Scott advises employers and represents them on the myriad of legal issues that they face, such as disputes with vendors and customers, breach of contract and liability claims, negotiations of contracts and leases, preventing or ending disparagement or unfair competition by former employees and/or competitors, as well as any corporate governance issues that they may face.

He regularly advises employers on employment issues such as:
