Kimberly Scott is a specialty litigator whose practice focuses on complex commercial litigation matters and “bet-the-company” litigation that present unique challenges, such as novel issues of procedure or law. Kim counsels clients at all phases of the litigation and helps develop strategy for complicated matters, covering multiple practice areas with an emphasis on intellectual property, antitrust, and commercial torts and business disputes. She has experience working on class action matters and multi-district litigation, and has litigated in courts across the country.

Kim specializes in cases that involve multiple and often nuanced theories of law. Her practice is not limited to one specific industry, but instead focuses on complex litigation strategy and coordination of parties in suits of all sizes. She is known for successfully managing nationwide litigation teams and taking the lead on litigation and trial strategy. Kim is familiar with every phase of complex litigation, and has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in cases ranging in value to 10 figures, including the largest judgment in a commercial dispute in Michigan that resulted in a $300 million dollar jury verdict and which settled for over $500 million on the eve of trial in federal court on the antitrust claims.

She has been identified as a Rising Star in Intellectual Property Litigation every year since 2012 by Michigan Super Lawyers and was named a Top Lawyer in antitrust law by DBusiness Magazine in 2013 and 2014. Michigan Lawyers Weekly identified Kim as one of their "Up & Coming Lawyers" in 2009. Kim is also very active in local and national professional associations and is admitted to practice in front of the United States Supreme Court.
