Swafford starts law firm

Scott Swafford

Scott Swafford has left Arnold & Porter LLP’s Washington office to open his own solo practice in Annapolis. His practice at A&P included litigation, government contracts, consumer protection, data security and privacy and telecommunications and also featured an extensive pro bono component.

While at A&P Scott represented scores of well-known corporate clients, regularly blogged on consumer protection or data security and privacy matters, and is the author of several sections of the American Bar Association’s new Data Security & Privacy Handbook, expected to be published later this summer.

During his time at A&P, Scott’s pro bono matters also included environmental, criminal defense, immigration, and family law pro bono matters, that included arguing and winning a case before the Maryland Court of Appeals, and collaborating with the D.C. Children’s Law Center on a civil rights challenge to D.C.’s adoption procedures.

Although Swafford Law will be handling a range of matters for clients in Maryland and Washington, Swafford anticipates that the firm will typically help small and mid-sized businesses navigate problems in consumer protection, privacy, contracting, and related areas. Swafford is a  graduate of American University’s Washington College of Law.
