Scott D. Earnshaw focuses his practice on corporate law and contractual matters for both start-ups and growing businesses. Having been directly involved in the founding and management of several start-ups, he understands the conflicting stresses and satisfactions involved in the often chaotic environment of a start-up. His clients are businesses involved in publishing, advertising, internet marketing, sports & entertainment, direct sales, chemicals, alternative energy technology, and pharmaceutical marketing. He has worked on international projects involving vaccines, credit cards, and the sale of personal care products.
Mr. Earnshaw brings a broad background to bear on each client’s unique issues. He started his career as an appellate litigator with the Department of Justice after clerking for a district court judge in Washington, D.C. He specialized in mergers and acquisitions for six years with Skadden Arps, working on joint ventures involving aircraft leases, credit reports, and ice cream. Merger and acquisition projects included beverages and silicon wafer manufacturing. He then shifted in-house with Morgan Stanley where he managed the Tokyo legal and compliance group for eight years. During those years, Mr. Earnshaw assisted in the evaluation of legal risks for each of the new businesses his firm launched – distressed loan trading, securitization, retail brokerage, and a new office in nearby Seoul, Korea. He has worked with local counsel in Australia, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, the UK, Italy, Switzerland, and Mexico.
Mr. Earnshaw plays an active role in his community, currently serving a three-year term as a member of the school board. He also volunteered for many years as the Chairman of the Trustees of the Trust Funds for the Town of Bedford.
