WHO IS SCOTT CIRCLE?
There’s no Mr. Circle - or anyone else named Scott here. Our name is a nod to the location of our first office at One Scott Circle, NW, and our special relationship to the nation’s capital. While we’ve since moved across town a bit, our DC roots remain steadfast. We continue to look forward to the cherry blossoms that bloom on Scott Circle and throughout our beautiful city each spring.
