About Me

Jordan concentrates his practice in two areas: intellectual property law and startups. He prepares and prosecutes patent applications in the computer, software, electrical, and electro-mechanical arts. He also handles post-grant patent matters (such as inter partesreexamination and review). Additionally, Jordan conducts comprehensive pre-litigation patent analyses, particularly those involving software systems. Jordan enjoys working with startups and the myriad issues they face, including licensing, corporate organization, financing, intellectual property, and compliance.

Before and during law school, Jordan was a computer engineer at a Fortune 100 semiconductor technology company, where he developed carrier-grade telecommunications software and equipment, established an enterprise engineering-management software system, and assisted in-house counsel to strengthen and diversify the company's global patent portfolio.

As an experienced computer engineer, Jordan is intimately familiar with software, open source, cloud computing, and social media issues. He prepares licenses and technology transfer agreements for clients looking to acquire or leverage their technology. He also prepares software-as-a-service agreements and related contracts for technology companies.
