Kenneth C. Scott - 2008

Mr. Scott is renowned throughout the surety industry as the dean of the surety law fraternity.  Over the course of a stellar career spanning almost five decades, Mr. Scott supervised or was consulted in litigation in all 10 provinces and argued cases before the Supreme Court of Canada.

In 1993, he along with his long-time partner and collaborator, Bruce Reynolds published Scott and Reynolds on Surety Bonds which is upheld by practitioners and the courts as the definitive text on construction and surety jurisprudence in Canada. As Mr. Reynolds says of his partner and mentor, “Ken Scott is one of the giants of the Canadian construction bar and his legacy continues in the (practice of) construction, surety and fidelity law.”
