Todd M. Sorrell Named Partner at Downtown’s Fulbright & Jaworski


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Todd M. Sorrell has been promoted from senior associate to partner at Fulbright & Jaworski, the firm reported yesterday.

Sorrell is the only member of the firm’s 2003 partnership class from outside its Texas base, according to a release.

The 1994 UCLA School of Law graduate is the “first home-grown partner here in Los Angeles,” he told the MetNews, an experience he said was “humbling and exciting.” He said he was pleased to be partnered with “some of the greatest lawyers in the nations.”

Sorrell is part of the general litigation practice at the firm, dealing with commercial law, employment litigation, trade secret and patent work, securities litigation and arbitration, insurance coverage, administrative law and licensing, gaming litigation, and international disputes.

He is a 1991 graduate of UC Santa Barbara, where he majored in Spanish. He did not intend to go to law school when he started there, he said, but the language has come in handy, since he has represented clients from Mexico, Costa Rica, Chile and Spain.

Before joining the firm, he was an extern for U.S. District Judge, now Chief Judge Consuelo Marshall.
