W. Mark Scott, former head of the Internal Revenue Service's tax-exempt bond office, has left Vinson & Elkins LLP to join forces with Orlando-based Digital Assurance Certification LLC to promote a bond-related product and start his own law practice.
"I really enjoyed practicing at Vinson & Elkins. It's a great place and it has great lawyers," Scott said in a brief interview yesterday. "But I had this opportunity with DAC and decided to go in that direction. But I will be keeping open a small legal practice."
