Drew Sorrell Appointed Chair-elect of the Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resource Center Board of Directors

July 30, 2020

Lowndes is pleased to announce that Shareholder Drew Sorrell has been appointed chair-elect of the board of directors of the Alzheimer's and Dementia Resource Center (ADRC), a Central Florida-based nonprofit and community resource center providing dementia-specific programs for caregivers within the Central Florida area for more than 35 years. His term as chair-elect will run from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021, at which time he will become chair of the ADRC. 

Sorrell’s involvement with ADRC is inspired by his father, who passed away from Alzheimer’s disease last year. “I understand the impact that Alzheimer’s has on the family and caregivers of a loved one with the disease,” said Sorrell. “Alzheimer’s and other dementia diseases attack the foundations of a family, but ADRC provides them with much-needed emotional support and education to help them cope.”

Sorrell, who serves as chair of the Firm’s Cybersecurity, Privacy & eDiscovery Group, focuses his practice on complex commercial issues, relating to both litigation and contract/policy drafting. He has extensive experience litigating business matters, intellectual property/patent infringement disputes, data breach/privacy issues, wire fraud (spoofing/spear phishing), business torts/disputes, insurance coverage, personal injury and employment litigation. He also has significant experience drafting and negotiating software licenses (SaaS), Internet service provider agreements, data privacy/breach policies and procedures and employment/services agreement, including the indemnity and insurance coverage related to those agreements.

In addition to his legal practice, Sorrell is a founding and current member of The Sedona Conference, Working Group 11, past president of the Federal Bar Association (Orlando Chapter) and past chair of several committees at the Orange County Bar Association. He also serves a chair of the Privacy and Data Security Committee for Meritas, a global alliance of nearly 200 law firms worldwide.

Admitted to practice in Florida, New York and Washington, DC, Sorrell earned his J.D. from the George Washington University Law School, his M.B.A. from the Rollins College Crummer Graduate School of Business and his B.A. from Rollins College.

Drew

Drew Sorrell's practice focuses on complex commercial issues, relating to both litigation and contract/policy drafting.


Drew has years of experience litigating business matters, intellectual property/patent infringement disputes, data breach/privacy issues, wire fraud (spoofing/spear phishing), business torts/disputes, insurance coverage, personal injury and employment litigation. Likewise, he has significant experience drafting and negotiating software licenses (SaaS), Internet service provider agreements, data privacy/breach policies and procedures, employment/services agreements as well as the indemnity and insurance coverage related to those agreements.

Initially, Drew began his legal career as a judicial clerk to Senior United States District Judge John H. Moore II, in Jacksonville, Florida, and then practiced with an AmLaw top 10 firm in Manhattan primarily in their litigation department. After spending some time as an assistant county attorney responsible for litigation, he joined Lowndes and is currently chair of the firm’s multi-discipline Cybersecurity, Privacy & eDiscovery Group.

A founding member of the Sedona Conference Group 11 (Privacy/Data Security), Drew is frequently asked to speak and write on legal and ethical issues arising from technology, including unfair and deceptive trade practices, data breach, privacy, data governance, and technology contract drafting. He is also currently serving as chair of the Orange County Bar Association Intellectual Property Committee.

Drew has argued to the United States Court of Appeal for the Eleventh Circuit, at the federal level, and the Fifth District Court of Appeal at the state level. He is admitted to The United States Supreme Court Bar, as well as the Florida, New York and District of Columbia Bars. He is admitted to practice before all federal district courts in Florida as well as the Southern District of New York.

Born in Florida, Drew roots for his adopted football team—the FSU Seminoles (because neither Rollins nor George Washington has a football team). He is a proud father of two sons who play basketball and soccer, make great grades and generally keep him very busy in his spare time.
