Along with years of litigation experience, Todd MacLeod brings a wealth of direct construction and business knowledge to his practice of construction law. A successful general contractor, business owner and corporate executive prior to his legal career, Todd has both first-hand knowledge of the construction industry and a deep understanding of the challenges his clients face. He takes great satisfaction in utilizing his diverse knowledge and experience to craft effective legal strategies and present options in a clear, understandable way.
Todd’s practice focuses on construction litigation for all phases of the industry, representing owners, developers, general contractors, subcontractors and design professionals. He also handles general and commercial litigation, contract evaluation and dispute resolution.
Prior to joining Bachara Construction Law Group, Todd was a partner at Cole, Scott & Kissane, P.A., in Jacksonville. Before attending law school, he owned and operated a construction company and served as a construction project manager in Jacksonville and South Florida. Each of those roles added to his knowledge of residential and commercial development, increased his familiarity with the legal needs of the construction industry, and built on the business acumen acquired in an earlier career as an executive in the aerospace, pharmaceutical and digital media industries.
Todd is admitted to practice throughout the State of Florida and is a member of The Florida Bar, the Jacksonville Bar Association and the American Bar Association. Recognized by his peers through Best Lawyers in America for 2023, and as a Super Lawyers “Rising Star” each year since 2017, he holds a B.S. in Commerce from the University of Virginia, an MBA in Decision Information Science from the University of Florida, and earned his J.D. from the Florida Coastal School of Law.
In the community, Todd serves on the Jacksonville Advisory Board of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and is active as a volunteer coach for youth football. He is the proud father of Casey Elizabeth MacLeod and Connor Andrew MacLeod.
