BSA Audit Experience

Experience is perhaps the most important criteria when choosing an attorney to represent your business. Scott & Scott, LLP is the right choice to defend your business against the Business Software Alliance because our lawyers have extensive experience fighting the BSA. We have represented hundreds of companies accused of software piracy by the Business Software Alliance. Our highly focused team of attorneys and technology consultants can guide your business through every step of the BSA Audit process. Whether your company is already under investigation or just concerned about exposure, our lawyers have the technical and legal experience necessary to protect your business against the Business Software Alliance.  The BSA is funded by large software companies including Adobe, Autodesk, IBM, McAfee, Symantec, and Microsoft to name just a few. They have deep pockets to hire law firms with many resources. It is not advisable to be in a David vs. Goliath situation without experienced counsel on your side to protect your rights.
