Scott G. Kobil has extensive experience in every facet of litigation in federal and state courts, from drafting the initial pleadings through the handling of trial and appeals. Scott has particular expertise with discovery and e-discovery issues (common and unique), having overseen massive data collections and productions, worked with a variety of outside vendors, taken and defended over 50 fact and expert depositions, and successfully argued numerous motions.
Scott has represented diverse clients spanning from individuals to Fortune 500 companies. His practice includes employment discrimination and wrongful termination cases, contractual disputes, and toxic tort and products liability matters. Scott represented a telecommunications provider in an antitrust lawsuit over several years, described by the judge as “one of the most—if not the most—complicated case in the district.” After a 6-month trial, he helped procure an historic $20 million verdict (trebled to $60 million).

Scott’s successful pro bono appeal of a Driving Under the Influence conviction before New Jersey’s Appellate Division was recognized in the February 24, 2011 issue of New Jersey Law Journal.
