Scott Tobin is a partner in Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP's Raleigh and Atlanta offices where he provides strategic business advice and litigation support to high growth organizations and those who govern, manage, and invest in them. While he advises those involved in a broad spectrum of industries, a significant portion of his business practice focuses on managing risk and capitalizing on growth opportunities for privately held life science and information technology companies and their investors. He often teams with clients at business critical junctures including raising capital, leveraging capital and technologies (typically through licensing, strategic partnerships, or acquisitions), or when owners or managers are exiting a business. His litigation practice is concentrated largely upon disputes involving business sales and acquisitions and among private company investors and lenders, directors, and management.

Mr. Tobin has experience as a lawyer, senior executive, entrepreneur, and venture capitalist. His career has included roles as board member, president, general counsel and  principal financial officer of a publicly traded molecular diagnostics company, CEO of a North Carolina furniture manufacturer, general counsel to a global software firm, executive vice president for global strategies and manager of the venture investment portfolio of a publicly traded communications technology company, managing partner of the Atlanta office of a European law firm, and assistant attorney general for the State of Georgia. Mr. Tobin has handled business disputes in state and federal courts across the United States, as well as cross-border litigation. In addition, he served as North Carolina litigation counsel to the National Republican Senatorial Committee during the 2014 election cycle.
