Biography

The primary focus of Jordan’s practice has always been to work with clients to develop innovative yet prudent ways to address and resolve complex transactional, corporate and litigation matters. He represents businesses of all sizes, including financial institutions, manufacturers, tax-exempt entities, energy and natural resources companies, commercial real estate developers and investors, and Fortune 500 companies. Working in concert with his colleagues across our diverse practice groups, Jordan is honored to serve as his clients’ go-to problem solver for any business that requires multidisciplinary advice.

Jordan devotes a considerable part of his practice to providing practical legal advice to financial institutions and businesses dealing with distressed credit and financial restructuring situations. Either working for a lender, creditor or borrower, he frequently advises clients on financial workouts, loan restructurings, insolvency issues and recapitalization, as well as prosecutes and defends avoidance actions and represents bankruptcy trustees and creditor committees.

Jordan’s goal is to provide his institutional clients effective and immediate advice to reduce costs, provide value added services and work closely with management to integrate cost effective strategies for maximum recovery on distressed credits. He has developed and manages a national collections platform that provides traditional bankruptcy, foreclosure and loan restructuring services to some of the largest banking institutions in the United States.

In recent years, Jordan has spent considerable time developing an integrated approach to partnering with his clients’ in-house counsel to focus on identifying ways to effectively manage risk, monitor compliance and regulatory requirements, and adopt new platforms that utilize technology, data analytics, and auditing to reach their goals of predictability in legal spending, diversity across legal teams, and optimized delivery of work product.
