Matthew Moscon is the new office managing partner for the law firm’s Salt Lake City office.

“All of us at Stoel Rives commend Scott for his leadership and thank him for his service,” said James E.

He has a general litigation practice, with a particular focus in energy, regulatory and land use disputes, and has practiced before state and federal trial courts, appellate courts, and administrative agencies.
“Scott has been a great leader who has encouraged us to provide excellent legal service to every one of our clients,” said Moscon. “I appreciate the opportunity to continue that effort to make Stoel Rives a pre-eminent law firm in our region.”
Moscon is a member of the Utah State and American Bar Associations and the International Association of Defense Counsel. He serves on the Board of Governors of the Utah Shakespeare Festival and is a past board member of several other charitable organizations.
