The entire Scott+Scott family is profoundly saddened by the sudden passing of our friend and associate Justin Batten.

Justin was a rising star among the firm’s antitrust and consumer protection practice group, and played a significant role in securing $386.5M in settlements on behalf of his clients in the GSE Bonds Antitrust case. Beyond his professional contributions, Justin will be remembered for his kindness and genuine caring for others.

Prior to joining Scott+Scott, Justin was an Assistant Attorney General in the New York State Attorney General’s Antitrust Bureau. He received his J.D. from New York University School of Law in 2017. While in law school, Justin served as an articles editor for the Journal of Law & Liberty and was a Teaching Assistant to Professor Mark Geistfeld.

A native Georgian, Justin earned his B.S. cum laude at Georgia State University in Atlanta in 2012. Even after relocating to New York, he never lost his passion for his hometown Falcons and Braves. He spoke Spanish fluently and was an avid runner and cooking enthusiast.

We will miss Justin deeply, both personally and professionally, and send our heartfelt condolences to his family, his friends, and the many people who loved him.
