J. Scott Rose
How do you define success? That is the question Scott Rose asks his clients each time they seek his advice. Whether the matter involves a new client or one he has counseled for many years, the focus is always the same – helping the client succeed. Encouraging a client to define the ultimate goal at the outset of a matter not only clarifies the strategy for representation but frequently hastens the desired outcome. Indeed, this goal-oriented approach often leads to consensual resolution of multi-party business disputes and, ultimately, achieves success not only for Scott’s client but other parties involved as well.
For over 30 years now, Scott has served as attorney and counselor to national lending, finance, and investment institutions on all aspects of commercial business transactions. With extensive experience in commercial lending transactions and corporate debt restructuring, Scott has also represented many clients in the acquisition of distressed companies or assets through bankruptcy proceedings. When consensual resolutions prove unattainable, Scott has served as lead counsel in bankruptcy-related litigation involving allegedly voidable transfers under both state and federal law. He has argued and prevailed in precedent-setting cases before bankruptcy courts, federal district courts, and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
In addition to his client work, Scott served for four years on the Firm’s management committee and as managing partner of the San Antonio office.
