The new firm will be known as Pardo Jackson Gainsburg & Shelowitz, PL, with specialties in real estate, corporate, construction law, bankruptcy, commercial litigation and hotel/hospitality law.

Pardo Jackson Gainsburg & Shelowitz, PL will be spearheaded by two former Greenberg Traurig shareholders – Stevan Pardo and Linda Worton Jackson – who spent a combined 25 years at Greenberg Traurig. After leaving there, Worton Jackson founded Salazar Jackson.

Jackson, who will chair the firm’s Corporate and Financial Services and Bankruptcy departments, is considered among the most accomplished business and insolvency practitioners in South Florida. She has developed a reputation as the go-to person for sales, acquisitions, corporate reorganization and complex bankruptcy cases.

“Linda’s practice dovetails with everything else we do,” said Stevan Pardo, who chairs the firm’s Construction and Corporate Hospitality practices. “Her depth of professional experience will prove to be invaluable to our clients as we continue to grow our existing practice.”
