Scott Douglas is a senior policy director in Crowell & Moring's Government Affairs and Health Care groups. His practice focuses on assisting clients with legislative and regulatory issues. Scott uses his significant health care public policy experience to assist health care companies, managed care, long-term care, long-term care pharmacy facilities, trade associations, and others with legislation before the U.S. Congress.

Scott has experience working in highly diverse settings, including Fortune 500 companies and a contract lobbying firm. He ran multi-state lobbying operations, working directly with decision makers and overseeing external lobbyists. Scott directed the state government affairs program for the 47-state operation of a Fortune 400 health care company, monitored developing legislation, and developed and executed lobbying strategies. He was also a principal lobbyist at Capital Link Consultants, a leading Kentucky lobbying firm, and successfully represented clients from the health care, consumer finance, education, manufacturing, retail, insurance, and information technology sectors.

In addition to his government affairs background, Scott worked as the finance director for United States Senator Mitch McConnell, the current Senate Majority Leader. He also served as the Kentucky campaign manager for Bush-Cheney 2000 and as the political director for United States Senator Jim Bunning's 1998 campaign. Drawing from his experience in political campaigns, Scott also advises clients on effectively using grassroots, public relations, and crisis communications as an important component of broad-based government relations strategies.

Scott is a past president of the Washington Industrial Roundtable, an executive-level organization, which meets regularly for "off the record" meetings with members of Congress, Executive Branch officials, public figures, and private sector spokesmen to discuss current public policy issues.

Scott earned his B.A. from Eastern Kentucky University.
