Carruthers & Roth, P.A.
Scott Dillon is the senior attorney in our Business, Tax and Estates department. He has a broad-based business, corporate, and transactional practice that includes handling personal and estate-related matters for the owners and their families. Scott has 40 years of experience dealing with legal issues affecting businesses and counseling with business owners on such matters, as well as drafting and negotiating business contracts.
Especially in recent years, the most substantial part of Scott’s practice has involved representing clients in the purchase and sale of businesses for amounts ranging from $1 million or less to more than $100 million. “The sale of a family business is frequently the largest and most important transaction many of our clients will face,” Scott says. “They look to us for advice in structuring the deal from a business and tax perspective and for assistance in all aspects of the transaction and their subsequent retirement planning. They place a great deal of trust in us we do not take lightly.”
Scott also has significant experience representing many local medical and dental practices in all aspects of their operations, including practice formation, professional employment agreements, owner buy-ins and buy-outs, and the purchase and sale of professional practices. He also is the go-to attorney at C&R on matters relating to the design and operation of qualified retirement plans, nonqualified deferred compensation plans, employee benefits, and self-directed IRA transactions.
Scott was managing partner of C&R for 25 years. When not working for his clients, he enjoys exercise (particularly cycling), playing with his five grandkids, and spending time at his second home at Holden Beach.
