R. Quincy Bird



Quincy Bird advises and advocates on behalf of employers on a wide range of labor and employment matters.

Quincy returned to private practice in 2018 after several years in-house with a growth-phase private equity real estate firm, where he directed employment matters, internal investigations, charge responses, and audits. Having lived it himself, Quincy understands employers' challenges regarding labor and employment law compliance and crafting effective and enforceable policies and processes, including the emerging area of employer biometric data collection and usage. As a litigator, Quincy adds value for clients through a robust, proactive defense of employment claims and the maintenance of a healthy, sustainable corporate culture supported by process improvements, training, and risk mitigation strategies.

Immediately prior to joining Carlton Fields, Quincy was a law clerk to the Honorable James D. Whittemore of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida and was in-house at Avesta, a real estate management firm nationally recognized for its corporate culture.

Raised in Alaska, Quincy enjoys Tampa's year-round fishing and boating season with his wife and two daughters only slightly more than they enjoy cheering for the Tampa Bay Lightning.
