Scott Mirsky is a Principal in Miller, Miller & Canby’s Employment Law and Employment Litigation practice. He focuses his practice on advising and litigating construction, business, and employment disputes.

He has more than 20 years of experience representing individuals and businesses in diverse civil matters throughout the Washington, DC region. He also represents numerous language services companies in issues arising out of the independent contractor relationship.

Scott’s practice covers the full spectrum of litigation services including pre-litigation counseling risk and litigation management trials, hearings, arbitrations, and appeals before federal and state courts. He has earned a reputation for being passionate about his clients’ cases and legal challenges. He has provided successful representation to small, midsize, and national clients. Because of his experience in commercial and employment litigation, Scott counsels clients in connection with employment agreements and routinely litigates non-compete cases. Scott also devotes a significant amount of his practice to counseling employers regarding the independent contractor relationship and defending employers in wage and hour litigation (including collective and class action matters).
