Jordan solves problems – with an emphasis on real estate, insurance, shareholder disputes and administrative law matters. He has litigated a wide variety of commercial cases, including trying bench and jury trials to verdicts.
Jordan’s real estate practice has included the representation of the largest commercial property owners in the world, real estate investment trusts, developers, contractors, suppliers and buyers and sellers of real estate in Philadelphia. He has litigated commercial transactions gone awry, construction disputes, land use matters, zoning appeals, lease disputes and a multitude of other matters where real property lies at the heart of the case.
In his insurance practice, Jordan litigates coverage disputes and counsels policyholders when buying coverage and during the claims process. He has a particular interest in cyberinsurance, where he has become a thought leader, frequent lecturer and hosts the oldest and longest-standing blog devoted exclusively to cyberinsurance coverage law. You can learn more by following along on his Cyberinsurance Law Blog.
When shareholders, partners or members of privately held companies no longer see eye to eye, Jordan is an aggressive litigator who nevertheless understands that the best results in these cases are often not obtained in courtrooms. Still, Jordan regularly appears in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Commerce Program, where he has successfully dissolved private companies, steered the liquidation of real estate and other assets and worked closely with receivers on operational and wind-down matters.
One of the few lawyers in Philadelphia with deep experience with the regulatory issues impacting taxicab, limousine and dispatch companies, Jordan has represented clients before Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission and the Philadelphia Parking Authority. Jordan has used this experience to represent clients in many aspects of administrative law, including issues related to telecommunications companies, business permits and medical marijuana licensure.
A lawsuit is not always the right strategy, and Jordan is not always the right lawyer. Whether a client needs to draw on the firm’s deep pool of talented lawyers to employ sophisticated transactional or tax strategies, are looking for a subject matter expert to help with operational issues or needs a referral to an attorney who is the right fit, Jordan’s primary and only goal is to put his clients in the best position possible to succeed.
