Rutter & Roy, the 110-year old, New Jersey-based environmental, energy and infrastructure law firm, is proud to announce that Richard G. Scott, Esq. has been promoted to partner, effective immediately.
“Rich joined our firm right out of law school and has remained here ever since. He immediately proved to his colleagues and the firm’s clients that his counsel is invaluable”, commented Christine A. Roy, Rutter & Roy’s Managing Partner.
In his environmental and energy legal practice, Rich works closely with clients – and often their environmental and land use consultants – to guide them through the regulatory intricacies required for projects, particularly those involving linear construction.
“As a young attorney right out of law school, the ability to collaborate with more experienced attorneys here at Rutter & Roy has proven to be invaluable for not only my professional growth but for the firm’s growth and our clients’ business and legal interests,” Rich noted.
Rich received his J.D. from Widener University School of Law and earned his B.A., cum laude, from Rowan University. He is a member and past Vice President of International Right of Way Association, New Jersey Chapter since 2011, as well as the New Jersey State Bar Association.
Rutter & Roy, recently certified as a WBE-owned and controlled firm by the NJ Department of Treasury’s Small Business Set-Aside and Minority and Women Certification Program, provides strategic counsel and legal solutions in environmental, energy and infrastructure matters including, but not limited to, eminent domain, project planning, environmental permitting and other regulatory approvals and land and use matters.
