Greg McNeill, Lowndes Photo


A sports law and trial attorney with considerable experience in state and federal courts, Greg is known for being straight-forward and responsive while managing clients' expectations. 

Greg McNeill chairs the firm's Litigation Department. His practice includes business and real estate litigation, construction litigation, commercial landlord/tenant disputes, enforcement of non-competition, confidentiality and trade secret agreements, employment law, hospitality contracting and disputes, church property litigation and appellate practice.

As a sports law attorney, he has represented athletes and coaches in the NBA, NFL, Major League Baseball, PGA Golf and other sports in team contract negotiations, endorsement contracts, name and image licensing agreements, book publishing opportunities and public appearances.

Greg is an experienced trial attorney with considerable courtroom experience in state and federal courts. He has successfully engaged in a wide variety of lawsuits, from defending the Seminole County supervisor in the 2000 election to the aviation litigation arising from the 1999 Lear Jet crash which took the life of PGA Tour golfer Payne Stewart. 

He is an equally accomplished negotiator and is just as proud to help a client reach a satisfactory settlement as he is to win a jury verdict. His philosophy is to prepare for trial but seek to settle.
