Scott has been a strong advocate for the wireless communications industry since the mid-1990’s. He has successfully represented international tower companies and FCC licensed communications carriers in numerous communities throughout the state of New York in connection with obtaining necessary land use and zoning approvals for wireless communications facilities. He has also represented telecommunications clients involving detailed and complicated mergers and acquisition projects.

Scott has significant experience with the Telecommunications Act of 1996 (“TCA”), its implementing regulations and the various FCC Declaratory Rulings and Orders that have been adopted in furtherance of the TCA. He has successfully represented clients in both State and Federal Courts on matters involving the TCA and related wireless siting issues.

Scott’s practice involves regular appearances before local municipal boards and agencies in furtherance of obtaining necessary right to build permits and approvals for clients. As a land use and zoning attorney, Scott has substantial experience navigating through the often complicated local land-use zoning laws as well as reviewing and preparing comprehensive and legally defendable land us and zoning applications, Findings Statements and various other related documents required by the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act (“SEQRA”).
