James Jordan (Legal)
I am a dedicated advisor to the general and business aviation sectors and provide advice across various jurisdictions in Asia relating to commercial litigation, regulatory issues, and the drafting/review of commercial contracts. I am admitted to practice law in England & Wales and Hong Kong.
I have been working with business aviation operators in Asia for over ten years and have strong connections within the industry, as well as in the finance and insurance sectors. I have been based in Asia for over a decade (5 years in Hong Kong and 5 years in Singapore) and have a strong commitment and passion for the Southeast Asian region.
I am currently the co-head of AsBAA's Singapore Chapter and have held the role for 2 years. During this period, I have helped guide the Chapter through the challenges of the pandemic.
I am also a committee member of the Singapore British Chamber of Commerce Transport, Logistics and Supply Chain Committee. In 2019, I was named one of Singapore’s 20 most influential lawyers under 40 by Singapore Business Review and was nominated by Asia Legal Business for Young Lawyer of the Year in 2021. I also actively supports the local start-up scene and was recently appointed as a mentor to Singapore's Starburst Accelerator program where I works with up-and-coming aviation tech start-ups.
