Foley & Mansfield is pleased to announce that the firm has further strengthened its senior team with the addition of attorney J. Scott Wood to its equity partnership. Wood joined the firm’s Oakland office in early 2007, subsequently founding its Seattle office in 2010. He serves as managing partner of Seattle operations in addition to maintaining an active practice in California.
“Scott has proven his value as both a counselor and advocate for our clients, and has continually demonstrated the leadership qualities necessary to help us effectively manage and grow our business,” says founding partner Kyle B. Mansfield. “We are incredibly pleased with this addition to the equity partnership and with Scott’s commitment to the long-term benefit of our clients and employees,” he adds.
With nearly two decades of experience as a litigator, Scott has an extensive background advising and litigating a variety of matters, representing clients in the areas of commercial litigation, construction, products liability, premises liability, and toxic torts. His commercial litigation experience has focused specifically in the areas of real estate, real property, commercial contract, and general business disputes. He has handled trials, arbitrations, mediations/settlement conferences, and appeals for hundreds of clients ranging from individuals to large corporations.
“It’s an honor to be invited to join the equity partnership of the firm,” says Wood. “I am delighted at this opportunity to further contribute to the firm’s continued growth and diversification.”
Wood is a member of the Washington, Oregon and California State Bar Associations, the Washington Defense Trial Lawyers Association, and the Defense Research Institute (DRI).
