Jordan La Raia represents both plaintiffs and defendants in complex commercial disputes, including insurance coverage claims and oil and gas litigation. She is a member of the Firm's Policyholder Specialty Practice Group, frequently representing policyholders, brokers and agents, as well as certain insurers and reinsurers, in difficult, high-stakes cases.

While her clients are predominantly Texas-based entities, Jordan has handled both corporate and litigation assignments in the U.S., Mexico and Canada. Her clients comprise several industries, especially oil and gas and chemical.

As insurance law continues to evolve in Texas, Jordan sees a rise in the need for companies to understand how the indemnity and defense provisions will work in their oil and gas service agreements and insurance policies. Her experience makes her especially qualified to advise and represent clients in the negotiations and litigation of these provisions, the goal being maximum protection and coverage for Firm clients. Clients value Jordan's perspective, combining her experience in litigation, insurance and transactional negotiations.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
