Drew Sorrell Authors Cybersecurity White Paper Published by Association of Legal Administrators

November 30, 2020

Drew Sorrell has authored a white paper entitled "The Risk: Cybersecurity Dangers During and After COVID-19" that has been published by the Association of Legal Administrators. 

The white paper discusses the sudden shift to remote working, the risks and costs of data breaches and malware, and tactics and measures that businesses can use to minimize cybersecurity risks.

“Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!” Likewise, no one expected a global pandemic that would send society into retreat and isolation where work from home would become a cliché catchphrase in these times. Organizational security was not ready for this event, and whether global cybercriminals were ready can be debated. Regardless, crime will find a way. Given the current circumstance, which is likely to persist well into 2021, this paper examines cybersecurity in the work-from-home (WFH) context.

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


Drew is an experienced business litigator who handles complex commercial matters, intellectual property/patent infringement disputes, data breach/privacy issues, wire fraud (spoofing/spear phishing), 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, and 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.
