Jordan Savitz is a Principal in the Business Law and Transactions practice group, recognized for his forward-thinking and business-minded approach to client representation. Jordan advises clients in all stages of the business life cycle, from choosing the appropriate type and jurisdiction of a new entity, to complex stockholder and operating agreements, restrictive covenant drafting and dispute resolution, employment agreements, complex contract drafting, and negotiation (including Master Service Agreements and home improvement contracts), through succession planning, mergers and acquisitions, and more.
Mr. Savitz grew up in an entrepreneurial environment. He learned to love the challenges inherent in growing a successful business and understands the importance of small businesses in the community. In high school, Mr. Savitz formed his first business venture, OmniNoise Productions, which he used as a platform to showcase local musicians in three "Battle of the Bands" competitions. While a student at Boston University, Jordan gained first-hand experience in finance at Merrill Lynch, commercial real estate at Edens & Avant (now Edens), and branding from both Feld Entertainment (the parent company to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus), and Chipotle Mexican Grill, where he was a Student Brand Manager. Mr. Savitz graduated law school cum laude, with a concentration in business law, from the University of Baltimore, where he simultaneously obtained his MBA.
Mr. Savitz leverages his background and passion for supporting entrepreneurship to understand his clients' business model and strategic objectives, and to provide practical legal advice that hedges against current and future risks, while considering business priorities that many other lawyers overlook.
"No two clients are the same, so I take the time with each one to understand how they operate and interact with others to provide legal advice that is tailored uniquely to their needs."
— Jordan Savitz
