Jordan Silber


Like Cooley, my counsel on private investment fund formation has become increasingly global in nature.

Jordan Silber's practice is concentrated on the formation and representation of private investment funds, primarily venture capital and growth equity funds, both in the U.S. and Greater Asia. He has acted in a leading legal capacity over the last 20 years in the raising of more than $60 billion in private fund interests across a multitude of investment areas, primarily focusing on technology, cryptocurrency and healthcare/life sciences.
