Position

Scott Chesin is a partner in the Supreme Court and Appellate practice in Mayer Brown’s New York office. He handles appeals in state and federal courts throughout the country, and he regularly partners with trial lawyers at Mayer Brown and at other firms to develop legal strategies applicable to all phases of litigation: pre-trial, trial, post-trial, and appeal. Scott has experience litigating a wide variety of substantive legal issues; his particular areas of interest are product liability defense, punitive damages, and criminal defense. Scott’s appellate practice is national in scope, with a particular focus on New York-based matters: since joining Mayer Brown in 2004, Scott has argued appeals in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and the Appellate Divisions for the First and Second Departments, and he has authored over two dozen briefs filed in the New York Court of Appeals, the Appellate Divisions, and the Second Circuit. He has also authored briefs filed in the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Fifth, Seventh, and Eighth Circuits, and state appellate courts throughout the country.
