Biography

Jordan’s advocacy, efficiency and practicality have earned him the trust of clients in many industries. Though he’s litigated a broad array of complex commercial cases, Jordan is particularly focused on insurance, real estate and transportation related matters.

In his insurance practice, Jordan litigates coverage disputes, drafts coverage opinions and acts either as coverage counsel or independent counsel where insurance defense counsel has been appointed. Jordan has specific expertise in cyberinsurance coverage law, routinely counseling policyholders buying or renewing coverage and frequently lecturing on the topic. He’s also well versed in more traditional coverages, including CGL, D&O, E&O and other lines.

Jordan’s real estate litigation practice has included the representation of some of the largest commercial property owners in the world, including publicly traded companies, as well as the provision of equally sophisticated counsel to local developers, contractors and suppliers. Representative matters have included lease disputes, land use matters, premises liability lawsuits and a diverse array of commercial litigation.

In his transportation practice, Jordan acts as outside general counsel to taxicab, limousine and dispatch companies in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties. He represents these clients in regulatory matters before the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission and the Philadelphia Parking Authority, as well as in litigation in State and Federal Courts. From car accidents to contract disputes to novel Network Transportation Company issues, Jordan has seen, and done, it all.

For many clients, Jordan is the first call for any legal issue. He is foremost a problem solver. Where litigation is not the answer, Jordan works with attorneys across the Firm to identify and implement corporate, tax, IP, employment and other transactional solutions to his clients’ issues. Simply, Jordan does whatever it takes to get results.
