In this episode, my guest is Jordan L. Fischer, co-founder and managing partner of XPAN Law Group, LLC, a Women-Owned boutique law firm. She focuses her practice on international data privacy and cybersecurity and cross-border data management, with a special emphasis in European Union data privacy regulations and the GDPR. Jordan has extensive experience in the intersection of law and technology.
In addition, Jordan is a Teaching Professor of Law at the Thomas R. Kline School of Law, where she brings an interdisciplinary approach to her teaching, exploring the convergence of the law and technology, researching practical implications of regional data protection regulations within a backdrop of the global economy.
Jordan does many powerful things that I just couldn’t help but have a chat with her. We met at a data privacy event in Manhattan a couple of years ago and hit it off. If you desire to start your own law firm or even cybersecurity practice, Jordan has a message for you.
Listen to when she first clerked for the Court of Justice in Europe, how she met her business partner and co-founder Rebecca at a prior law firm where they had worked together. Then boom! The law firm began. It has been an incredible journey growing a business in a drastically changing field.
About, how to choose your business partner, Jordan says:
Opening a business by yourself can be exhausting and overwhelming. Be candid about your goals, what you want the business to look like and what you need to do before you even form the business.
