Chad McCoy holds a mediation certificate from Cornell University and handles mediations – remote, in person at his office or in person elsewhere. Chad’s legal career has been one that makes him uniquely qualified to mediate as he has real world experience in a broad array of case types.
In the mid 1990’s, Chad started his career as a young lawyer working for Stites & Harbison doing corporate merger and acquisition work as well as general corporate formation and contracts. Up to this point, as the son of a general counsel for Ashland Oil, his focus had been on being a corporate attorney.
While at Stites, so many of the “old timers” kept pushing him to be a trial lawyer rather than a corporate attorney that he eventually moved into the employment discrimination litigation department. Even though Stites is primarily a defense firm, Chad ended up representing some high up female executives as a plaintiff’s attorney as well as handling numerous cases on the defense side.
In the early 2000’s Chad’s wife Holly – a physician and doing her residency – moved the family to Salt Lake City, Utah. While in Salt Lake Chad was a partner at the firm of Parr, Waddoups, Brown, Gee and Loveless and handled numerous federal court intellectual property trials as well as general defense litigation practice.
When residency was over, the family moved back to Kentucky and Chad began a practice in Bardstown handling all manner of small town matters from criminal to corporate to personal injury. While in Bardstown he had trials as both plaintiff’s counsel and defense counsel.
In 2016 Chad was elected as the State Representative for the 50th District and represented Nelson County in Frankfort for 3 terms. Starting with his second term, he was elected into leadership as the House Majority Whip. It was really in this position that he was able to hone his skills as a mediator.
As you might imagine, most legislation creation is nothing more than a large mediation involving numerous stakeholders. As house majority whip, he proved himself adept as a mediator bringing traditional rivals in many industrys together – for example, in the alcohol three tier system, he was able to pass legislation year after year to move the bourbon industry forward with broad support.
In 2022 Chad decided not to run for re-election and instead focus his 27 years of legal experience on mediation. Chad is AV Preeminent rated by Martindale Hubbel and holds numerous accolades including, but not limited to, the million dollar advocates forum, the Bourbon Hall of Fame, Super Lawyers etc.
