Prior Experience
Prior to his arrival at Lauletta Birnbaum, Jordan was an associate at OlenderFeldman, LLP where he worked extensively with software and technology clients, with a focus on businesses servicing the pharmaceutical industry that handle sensitive healthcare data. Jordan also served as an Adjunct Professor at Fordham Law School in New York City, teaching a course in Internet Law.

While at CLIP, Jordan worked in the areas of Internet and privacy law, with a focus on issues of intermediary liability, children’s privacy and privacy education. Jordan created a first-of-its-kind privacy education program, a comprehensive curriculum designed to educate middle-school students on the interplay of popular technologies, privacy and reputation management. That curriculum is now taught by law student volunteers at law schools across the country, including Fordham, Harvard, Yale and Georgetown.

Jordan also worked as the Privacy and Technology Analyst at the New York law firm DeVore & DeMarco, LLP, where he specialized in analyzing complex issues related to information privacy and security and compliance with international, regional and local laws on data security. He also previously worked as a legal intern with the New York Attorney General’s Office Internet Bureau.
