For 25 years, successful businesses, lenders and individuals have relied on Linda Worton Jackson to guide them through the risks and to help them reap the benefits of mergers, stock and asset acquisitions, joint ventures, debt and equity financing transactions, venture capital investments, and secured credit facilities. She is best known for her ability to get deals closed and react quickly to the changing landscape of any transaction. She has earned the nickname “Action Jackson” with her clients who value her responsiveness and results-oriented approach.
Linda is one of the most creative corporate attorneys I have worked with. She finds a way to make a deal happen regardless of the roadblocks. She also has a great ability to explain complex legal information in layman’s terms!Jim Wallace, COO and Co-Founder of Forerunner Technologies, Inc.
For start-up and emerging companies, Linda offers innovative guidance on fundamental structuring and finance issues, employment issues, shareholder agreements, and opportunities for the business. For more mature companies, she serves as a trusted advisor, counseling them on growth and acquisition strategies, mergers, acquisitions, board of director issues and exit strategies. Strategic and financial buyers regularly turn to Linda for her well-known expertise in acquiring distressed companies and their assets in multiple industries, including telecomm, nursery, oils and gas, fine jewelry, and e-commerce. She regularly represents both large and small companies, family enterprises, and a broad range of industries. Linda serves as the Attorney In Residence for the Center for Social Change, an incubator for start-up nonprofit businesses.
For banks and other lenders, Linda has a unique expertise. Linda represents them in all stages of a loan from the closing of the loan transaction to the refinancing or modification and to the litigation or bankruptcy phase where necessary. Linda’s experience in both the transactional and litigation aspects of a loan provides her with a perspective and ability that few attorneys possess and that her clients value.
With over 25 years of experience representing lenders, debtors, committees, creditors and purchasers, Linda has tackled all phases of bankruptcy litigation and Chapter 11 and 7 bankruptcy proceedings in cases all over the country. She is frequently called for emergency situations to tackle the most challenging circumstances that require immediate response. Linda routinely handles 363 bankruptcy sales from the litigation phase in the bankruptcy proceeding through closing and has the unique distinction of obtaining approval of a Chapter 11 debtor’s acquisition of an outside company while in Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
Linda was founding partner of Salazar Jackson until 2017, when she joined Pardo, Jackson & Gainsburg as a name partner. She also is an alumna of two of the top bankruptcy firms in the country – Ballard, Spahr, Andrews & Ingersoll in Philadelphia and Greenberg Traurig in Miami.
