Scott White heads M&P's Litigation Practice Group and the firm's criminal law practice, which focuses on "white collar" crimes such as personal and business tax avoidance, fraud, complex conspiracies and RICO. This includes counseling financial institutions that are victims of financial crimes, whose employees may be witnesses in criminal actions, or that need to comply with grand jury subpoenas. Mr. White is a lead trial lawyer in the firm's civil litigation and regulatory practice, drawing on his experience in the Attorney General's office and nearly 25 years in complex civil and commercial litigation in the courtroom. Known for his lively personality, his strong relationships with most of the leading Kentucky litigators and judges serves his clients well, often obtaining favorable and economical resolutions short of trial. But, if the case is tried, his personal skills are equally valuable in the courtroom.
More Than a Lawyer
Mr. White's life is as colorful as his character and his golf game. He has seven marathons under his belt, including the New York City, the inaugural Flying Pig (Cincinnati) and Paris (France). He also enjoys collecting vintage Jazz vinyl records and playing fantasy baseball.
A father of two, when his children were 11-years-old, he took each of them on a month-long car camping trip out west visiting national parks. This culminated in one last trip with both of them, at ages 14 and 16, to Oregon and Northern California. He is an Eagle Scout, and still enjoys backpacking, hiking and camping.
