Professional Experience:

Scott Remington practices in the areas of Probate Litigation, Contested Guardianship, Commercial Litigation, Mediation, Business and Banking, Sports Law, and Securities & Shareholders Disputes. Scott’s clients include individuals, banks, and businesses across the Southeast. He has substantial experience in other areas of commercial litigation, including bankruptcy, corporate wind up and involuntary dissolutions.

Between 2013-2022, Remington served as President and Managing Shareholder of the firm. In that role, he was responsible for day-to-day oversight of the firm’s five offices and approximately 90 employees stretching across the Florida Panhandle into Lower Alabama. Serving as President gave Scott a unique perspective on the daily grind of running a small business. This experience informs his practice as he regularly represents business clients in a variety of public and private matters.

For his work in the public sector, he was recently recognized as #22 on the Independent Weekly’s “Power List”—a list of the 100 most influential people in the community. He currently serves as General Legal Counsel for Triumph Gulf Coast, Inc. and for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos. Additionally, Scott was appointed by the President of Florida State University’s College of Law to serve on the Alumni Association’s Board of Directors. Scott is active in the Episcopal Church serving as Florida Chancellor for the Episcopal Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast since 2012 and has served as a Deputy to the General Convention of the Episcopal Church three times.

In his free time, he enjoys reading a good book, fishing, and gardening. In 2010, Remington was the Pensacola Country Club Men’s Singles Tennis Champion. On weekends, you can find him with his wife, Amie, and their three children—Virginia, Tom & Harry—chasing “Whistle,” their Springer Spaniel, around Cordova Park, or in Red Bay, Florida, tending to his garden and confusing Guinea Hens.
