About the Firm

Dry Mill Consulting is the story of a road less traveled.  After a judicial clerkship, a stint prosecuting cases for the United States Department of Justice, and twenty years competing at the highest levels of “Big Law” in Washington DC, our founding partner stepped off the hamster wheel to look for new challenges.  And that’s nothing new.  Scott is an instrument-rated Bonanza pilot who has sailed a brigantine, stranded himself on a deserted island in the South Pacific, through-hiked the Highline trail, and swam with sharks in the Gulf of Mexico (and with Shakira though that is a longer story).

So how can we help?  Here are a few areas where we see strong potential for collaboration:

  • Business Strategy, Organization, Negotiation
  • Merger Control Analysis, Advocacy, and Arbitrage
  • Creative Writing, Public Relations, Editing
  • Traditional Business Litigation and Dispute Resolution
  • Risk Management, Compliance, and Compliance Programs
And if the category doesn’t fit the need, please reach out anyway.  We enjoy solving problems and meeting challenges.  If we can’t help directly, we will do our best to point you in the right direction.
