TAMPA, FL – Mac R. McCoy has rejoined Carlton Fields’ national Business Litigation Practice as of counsel in its Tampa office. He was most recently a U.S. Magistrate Judge in the Tampa and Fort Myers divisions of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

McCoy draws upon his tenure of nearly a decade as a judge, cultivating an ability to dive into any litigation and bringing to bear his expansive background in federal practice, class action litigation, complex commercial litigation, e-discovery, negotiation, and legal technology. 

“Mac is an experienced and pragmatic counselor, litigator, and jurist with a comprehensive understanding of the law,” said Gary Sasso, president and CEO of Carlton Fields. “His prior service as a U.S. Magistrate Judge, business litigator, and settlement facilitator makes him an invaluable resource to our clients and their needs associated with any and all aspects of federal and state civil litigation and dispute resolution.”

During his tenure as a judge, McCoy facilitated successful settlement conferences between parties using a hybrid facilitative and evaluative approach, with a focus on pragmatic problem-solving. He continues to serve as a neutral arbitrator in alternative dispute resolution, early case evaluation, mediation, arbitration, discovery referee work, and court-appointed neutral work.

McCoy is also chair-elect of the American Bar Association’s Business Law Section, which serves more than 30,000 members worldwide.

“I look forward to rejoining my colleagues at Carlton Fields,” said McCoy. “Their commitment to the continued improvement of the legal profession mirrors my own. I know I can continue to make a meaningful difference here.”

McCoy earned his J.D., cum laude, from Stetson University College of Law and dual Bachelor of Arts degrees, magna cum laude, from Stetson University.
