History

HAPPY 45th ANNIVERSARY!

Lowndes, Drosdick, Doster, Kantor & Reed was formed in Orlando in 1969 by four partners who were engaged primarily in a burgeoning real estate practice. The firm's founders established a challenging mission: “to become Central Florida’s best business law firm.” 

Capitalizing on the real estate boom accompanying the arrival of Walt Disney World, the firm quickly earned a reputation for its sophisticated real estate and land use counsel, and for talented attorneys with a strong work ethic and exceptional integrity. Dedicated at all times to an ever-increasing demand for its services, the firm’s early recognition for its real estate savvy evolved and grew to include equal footing in a range of additional legal services expected by our clients. These included sophisticated commercial litigation, tax, estate planning, construction, intellectual property, immigration and labor law. Recently, we added attorneys and offices in Gainesville, Melbourne and Mount Dora.

Today, we are truly a multi-practice law firm representing clients across a myriad of industries locally, nationally and beyond our borders. From our initial complement of just four lawyers and four staff members, Lowndes, Drosdick, Doster, Kantor & Reed has grown to become, according to the Orlando Business Journal, Central Florida’s largest law firm.

While we have grown and changed to meet the dynamic needs of our clients, the principles upon which we were founded have not changed. Click here to learn more about our culture...
