REINVENTING THE BUSINESS OF LAW
"Planning your own estate can be bleak and tedious. Thankfully, Dan's professional, forthright manner made the process clear, efficient, and easy."
- Hollywood Actor
“Dan’s methods are unique and refreshing. Rather than wanting to start a fight, he consistently wanted to solve a problem and, more importantly, heal my family in the process. That was his mantra. He sees the bigger picture and is really able to get quarreling parties to come to a peaceful resolution. That was a big help in my situation. Not only that, what could have took years and cost 6-figures in legal fees, took a fraction of that both in terms of time and cost. I couldn’t be happier or more thankful for Dan’s service and commitment.”
– Trust Beneficiary & Heiress

In addition, Dan brings a level-headed business perspective to every situation and problem, which when combined with his legal skills, has resulted in creative, efficient solutions for my business and company.”
– NYC Entrepreneur & Restaurateur
“Dan has solid capabilities for private equity firms, family offices, and other companies in the space, providing for a clear scope of legal services at a fixed, transparent cost that takes the uncertainty out of legal fees. He is diligent, responsive and cost efficient. Overall, a true pleasure to work with.”
– Southern Cross Group (a Latin American private equity fund)
"Dan is not like other lawyers. In fact, he's not like a lawyer at all. He's creative, but also takes a very practical, cost efficient approach and really gets the job done. Dan is the man when it comes to GC's!"
– Founder & CEO, Entertainment & Media Company
"I was really impressed with how simple some very complex legal and tax ideas were explained to me. Dan was very professional but also very personable. He made it easy and made me feel good about getting my estate planning in order. He guided me through every step of the process. I feel great knowing that my loved ones are taken care of. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone."
– Tech Entrepreneur
"Dan Scott has been a wonderful advisor, mentor and attorney for our company. He recognized the vision behind our platform in the very early days, and made introductions that were instrumental to our growth. He listened to the evolving needs of our company and developed systems to support those changes in a way that many other law firms had not. Dan's attitude and work with us was truly the product of a partner vested in our success! At the end of the day, Dan has been a wonderful friend to the company, providing us with top notch legal support, as well as believing in our vision and making it stronger with complex yet elegant solutions. We greatly look forward to doing awesome and innovative things together for many years to come."
- Co-founder, Tech Startup
