Scott is a dual qualified criminal lawyer having been admitted in the Supreme Court of England & Wales in January 2009 and thereafter in the Supreme Court of New South Wales in August 2013. Scott moved to Queensland in 2013 to work for Wettenhall Silva Solicitors before taking over the practice in 2017 with Mark Butler.

Scott was educated at Bembridge Boarding School and undertook his first degree, a BSc (Hons) in Marine Geography at Cardiff University, before deciding he was better served getting paid to argue for a living by becoming a lawyer. He attended Exeter University Law School, where he undertook his law degree and legal practice course.

Scott trained at Kaim Todner LLP Solicitors, London before joining Baxter Brown McArthur, London in October 2008. During this time he has worked on several large, complex matters, including a large-scale drugs importation, which resulted in him having to travel to Bogota, Colombia for ten days to gather information for use at trial. This resulted in an acquittal after re-trial. Scott has also worked on very high value confiscation matters including an £11,000,000 confiscation order which was successfully defended. Scott has conducted over 200 Magistrates Court trials as advocate.

Outside work Scott is a very keen snowboarder, golfer and squash player.
