When lawyers at Scott & Scott first encountered a SIIA letter many years ago, it was not easy to find counsel experienced in defending software audits. Although it may be easier these days to find lawyers who have handled one or two software audits, there is one thing that sets Scott & Scott apart from its competition — experience. Since successfully resolving its first SIIA matter without a settlement penalty, Scott & Scott has represented more than 50 companies of all sizes. Our clients have ranged from one person lumber shops in South Dakota to companies with thousands of employees in Texas.
