Career

Since 1990, Scott's expertise has included pensions, benefits, executive compensation and related tax law. Scott helps clients establish and sustain pension, benefit and deferred compensation plans, providing counsel on regulatory compliance, governance and funding issues, as well as the impact of mergers and acquisitions on these plans. From a tax perspective, he works with clients to develop executive and deferred compensation plans, and advise them on issues around stock options, retiring allowances, profit sharing and corporate reorganizations.

Scott also assists national and multi-national clients, as well as multi-employer plan sponsors, with provincial, federal and Income Tax Act compliance. For over fifteen years, he worked as a senior consultant with two major multi-national actuarial and accounting firms. With this experience, he is uniquely positioned to provide strategic legal consulting advice in tandem with professionals from the actuarial and accounting professions.

Scott is the past Co-Chair of the Alberta-British Columbia Joint Expert Panel on Pension Standards, past national and regional chair of the Canadian Pension & Benefits Institute, past chair of the Pension, Benefits and Compensation Section of the Canadian Bar Association (British Columbia), past chair of the Corporate Counsel Section of the Canadian Bar Association (British Columbia), former member of the Pension Advisory Council to the British Columbia Government, and former member of the Trustee Act Modernization Committee of British Columbia.
