Scott Apking draws on a breadth of litigation experience to assist clients, from handling real estate, toxic tort and other business disputes to his work as a city prosecutor and representing military veterans before administrative bodies.
Examples of Scott’s recent work include:
- Conducted document review and witness preparation in a copyright infringement case that ultimately settled before trial.
- Prepared research for a successful motion for summary judgment on behalf of a major financial services firm facing a claim of breach of fiduciary duty.
- In a rent and possession case, represented a commercial landlord whose restaurant franchisee tenant breached a lease, moved out and stopped paying rent. The case settled the day the trial was set to begin.
He has also worked on cases involving real estate fraud, environmental and non-compete/trade secret matters and is the prosecuting attorney for Black Jack, Missouri, a suburb in north St. Louis County.
While attending the University of Missouri School of Law, Scott co-founded the school’s Veterans Clinic. The clinic represents low-income veterans in judicial proceedings before the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veteran’s Claims and the Board of Veterans’ Appeals.
Scott supervises 40 soldiers as a platoon sergeant in the Army Reserves and is a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
