CORP AMERICA / MARCH 2017 25 , Jordan Fisch of Cole Schotz talks about the business and the new role he has undertaken as the co-chair of the firm’s restaurant and hospitality group. Upholding the Highest Standards of Sustenance Cole Schotz provides legal services throughout the United States from its offices in New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Texas and Florida. The firm represents hundreds of businesses, large and small, as well as select individuals. Relationships and results are at the core of the Cole Schotz experience. Achieving success for each client is the goal, and that relentless commitment is what sets the firm apart. Cole Schotz brings together more than 130 attorneys across a wide range of practice areas including: bankruptcy and corporate restructuring; construction services; corporate, finance and business transactions; employment; environmental; healthcare; intellectual property; litigation; real estate; restaurant & hospitality; tax, trusts and estates; and white collar investigation. The firm’s ranks include former federal and local officials; former corporate counsel and fortune 500 executives; certified civil trial attorneys; and fellows from the American college of trial lawyers and the American college of bankruptcy. Jordan Fisch is co-chairman of the corporate department and co-chairman of the firm’s new restaurant and hospitality group. In these capacities, he is responsible for overseeing staffing of matters, working on marketing and business development initiatives, hiring needs, and other strategic and administrative matters. Jordan has been the co-chair of the corporate department for three years and spearheaded the launch of the restaurant and hospitality group just this year. “We had been doing work for foodie entrepreneurs, restaurant groups, celebrity chefs, craft brewers, hotel owners and investors for a number of years. To better meet their needs, we wrapped our experience and services into a practice group focused specifically on this industry and the unique opportunities and challenges it can present. I personally enjoy working with entrepreneurs and providing counsel and advice that will allow them to pursue their passion and succeed. And, the New York City market is clearly a dynamic market in which to work.” On a personal note, Jordan’s father was the managing partner of the law firm where he worked prior to joining Cole Schotz. Jordan worked there for five years, gaining valuable experience, before the firm was dissolved. “I tirelessly worked to prove myself as an independent worker, outside of my father’s shadow, and to earn the respect of my colleagues and staff – some of which had known me since I was a child,” he explains, commenting on the challenges he has faced in his career. “Work ethic and dedication to the firm are characteristics I look for in associates and attributes I impress upon my colleagues.” Jordan is always focused on keeping up with industry trends in order to stay one step ahead for his clients. He is a subscriber to numerous email blasts and electronic newsletters, and builds in time to attend a variety of conferences and industry events at which information is exchanged with respect to the business climate. He tells us what we can expect from Cole Schotz in the future. “Cole Schotz is a vibrant and growing firm. With respect to my department and the restaurant and hospitality practice group, I am working to achieve greater visibility and recognition in the NYC market, always with a focus on providing excellent service for established and promising entrepreneurs.” K Company: Cole Schotz P.C.
