Jackson Lewis Names Ellison F. McCoy Greenville Office Managing Principal

GREENVILLE, SC (January 5, 2023) Nationwide employment law firm Jackson Lewis P.C. is pleased to announce Ellison F. McCoy has been elevated to office managing principal (OMP) in Greenville. Ellison succeeds Stephanie E. Satterfield, who is stepping down to focus on her additional leadership roles, including co-leading the firm’s Litigation group and serving as office managing principal in Charlotte. Chase Samples will assume the role of office litigation manager in Greenville.

“Since joining us in 2004, Ellison has contributed an incredible amount of enthusiasm, professionalism and commitment to the Greenville office,” said Firm Chair Kevin G. Lauri. “We thank Stephanie for her hard work as she moves forward to focus on co-leading our largest practice group and congratulate Ellison on this well-deserved elevation. We are confident that he will continue to push Jackson Lewis forward as a powerhouse in the local Greenville business community.”

Ellison focuses his practice on employment law on behalf of management, representing employers through litigation matters before state and federal administrative agencies as well as various state and federal trial and appellate courts. Throughout his legal career, Ellison has handled a wide scope of employment law matters including discrimination, harassment, wrongful discharge, retaliation, breach of contract, defamation, and trade secret violations. He devotes a significant amount of his practice to assisting employers with disability practice management issues arising under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Family and Medical Leave Act. Ellison also counsels clients on compliance issues and preventative strategies, and regularly conducts management training programs on various employment law and management topics.

“I am honored to be following in Stephanie’s footsteps as OMP,” said Ellison. “Her guidance and leadership have built a strong foundation in the office, and I look forward to expanding our presence in Greenville and continuing Jackson Lewis’ legacy of superior client services.”

Ellison earned his J.D. from the University of Georgia School of Law and his B.S. from Wake Forest University.
