Jennifer R. Scullion



Jennifer Scullion joined Seeger Weiss as a partner in its New York office in December 2016. A 20-year litigation veteran, Scullion has led complex litigations, arbitrations, and appeals for U.S. and multinational clients in a wide array of areas, including antitrust, consumer fraud, communications, and international bondholder disputes. She also has deep experience in class actions on both the plaintiff and defense side, as well as in federal regulatory proceedings.



Prior to joining Seeger Weiss, Scullion was a litigation partner in the New York office of Proskauer Rose, following positions with Solomon, Zauderer, Ellenhorn, Frischer & Sharp (New York) and Munger, Tolles & Olson (Los Angeles).



Some of her recent representations include:



Federal jury trial for an international sports league resulting in a defense verdict on all federal antitrust and state law claims;
Arbitration and FCC appeals for a U.S. cable operator resulting in a complete victory in a proceeding to determine fair market value of a carriage agreement with a regional sports network;
Representation of a professional sports league in consumer antitrust class action challenging league video distribution rules and agreements;
Federal class litigation for sovereign bondholders against the Republic of Argentina resulting in certification of eight classes representing millions of dollars in holdings;
Successful representation of an international video programmer on Most Favored Nation, breach of contract, and related claims in excess of $75 million;
Representation of an international sports organization in civil RICO and antitrust claims;
Dismissal on the merits of a consumer class action brought against a U.S. energy company;
Representation and advice to multiple U.S. programmers and distributors in connection with federal litigation, arbitrations, mediation, and FCC proceedings;
Bench trial for U.S. investors resulting in an order protecting them against discrimination in an Argentine law restructuring of a media group.



A prolific author, Scullion contributes articles regularly to the National Law Review, Law360, and other journals and blogs. She is also the author of two chapters on international civil litigation in an upcoming ABA book and co-author of numerous PLC Practice Notes on international litigation in U.S. courts.



Scullion graduated from Boston University in 1991, summa cum laude, with a degree in English literature. She earned her law degree from UCLA in 1995, graduating in the top five of her class and receiving Order of the Coif honors. After law school, she clerked for U.S. District Judge Stephen Wilson in the Central District of California.



In addition to her commercial litigation practice, Scullion has an active pro bono practice focusing on election law, voting rights, and amateur sports issues. Since 2007, she has worked with the nationwide Election Protection coalition in each general election.



She serves as a trustee of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. She also is a board member of the Three and a Half Acres Foundation, a community organization serving clients in the Harlem area of New York City. Scullion also has served pro bono on the panel of arbitrators for internal disputes for USA Climbing.
