Jordan’s unique background spans litigation (complex mortgage-backed securities litigation, contract and corporate disputes), international government affairs (at the United Nations in New York) and firm ownership and leadership (when she returned to her native West Michigan to start her own law firm and then merged it with a national firm, Talcott Franklin P.C., serving as a Managing Attorney and Partner of the combined entity).
While at Talcott Franklin, Jordan entered the world of high finance and capital markets as a member of the trial teams that litigated complex securities disputes all over the U.S. (i.e. Deutsche Bank National Trust Company v. JPMorgan Chase and the FDIC in federal court in DC.) and she also led internal operations spanning firm management and business development. This breadth led Jordan to pursue corporate clients as inside/outside counsel across various industries including Agribusiness, telecommunications, insurance, finance, real estate, manufacturing, and professional services.
Jordan received her law degree from Western Michigan Thomas M. Cooley Law School after two summers as a law clerk, first for Cooley Law co-founder Jack Cote and then Trustee Lawrence Nolan. Jordan returned as an adjunct professor to Cooley Law School to teach Sales & Negotiable Instruments.
