Prior to joining the firm, Scott performed patent and prior art research and analysis on the 3GPP wireless standard for a coalition of the world's largest wireless companies. Scott researched and categorized thousands of documents in the wireless field and helped design and populate a category tree for the wireless industry in which the documents and patents were accessible using a custom, online, wireless prior art database.
