Jordan also has significant experience advising on new ventures, entity formation, capital raising and investments, governance, partnerships, joint venture arrangements and general corporate and commercial counseling. He and his team work quickly to navigate pain points that arise in transactions by crafting solutions to close them in an efficient, cost-effective manner.
