Scott Allen is President of DOAR and leads the national trial consulting practice. He has more than 30 years of experience advising trial attorneys at some of the most respected law firms in the country on testing and developing case themes and the effective use of visuals in hundreds of jury and bench trials, hearings, arbitrations and mediations. Scott leads teams of multi-disciplinary consultants who perform focus group and mock trial research, develop graphics, and present evidence. Scott and his team design innovative research events to uncover their client’s most powerful story and probe the strengths and weaknesses of the opponent’s case to provide the most effective path to trial victory or settlement. Scott’s primary focus has been developing strategies for white-collar criminal, securities, antitrust, employment, environmental, insurance, and I.P. litigation.
Scott’s recent white-collar criminal case experience includes helping counsel develop successful trial strategies that led to the acquittal of Jean Boustani, a Privinvest executive charged with securities fraud; Andre Flotron in the 2nd “spoofing” trial U.S. history; and JP Morgan Analyst Ash Aggarwal, accused of insider trading. Recently, Scott and his team conducted a multi-day mock trial for Valeant Pharmaceuticals and Pershing Square Capital to provide advice for settlement in a long-running class action securities matter. Other relevant matters include leading the DOAR team of consultants who advised Irving H. Picard, Trustee for the liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Securities LLC, as well as for U.S. v. Akhavan and Weigand, T-Mobile v. Huawei, U.S. v. James Gatto, and U.S. ex rel. Hooper v. Lockheed Martin.
