Managing Director-New York, K2 Intelligence
Jordan Arnold is a Managing Director in K2 Intelligence’s New York office and brings more than a decade of investigatory and legal experience to complex engagements on behalf of private and public entities, financial services and law firms, and family offices.
Since joining K2, Jordan has directed an array of investigations and incident response assignments, including into allegations of fraud, violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, theft of trade secrets, insider misconduct, data breach, threats and stalking. He has also conducted proactive investigations to acquire evidence of corporate and individual wrongdoing, including the use of covert techniques, and has provided law enforcement referral and liaison services.
Additionally, Jordan heads K2’s Art Risk Advisory Practice, offering strategic assistance with evaluating transactions and partners, protecting collections and overcoming challenges to rights and authenticity.
Prior to joining K2, Jordan served as an Assistant District Attorney at the New York County District Attorney’s Office. In his final assignment, Jordan led development of and headed the Financial Intelligence Unit, and served as a Senior Investigative Counsel in Major Economic Crimes.
As a prosecutor, Jordan routinely worked with the Major Case Squad of the New York Police Department (NYPD) on some of Manhattan’s most sensitive investigations, involving abduction, extortion, stalking, bank robbery and art crime, as well as thefts committed within the Police Commissioner’s Office, judicial chambers, cultural institutions and luxury hotels. One of these investigations resulted in the return of a stolen Salvador Dali watercolor, and the conviction of its thief.
Jordan’s homicide prosecutions included that of Nicholas Brooks, for the domestic violence murder of Sylvie Cachay at a private club, and a member of the Bloods street gang for an execution-style killing. Also assigned to the Violent Criminal Enterprises Unit, Jordan directed proactive, long-term investigations that dismantled gun and drug trafficking crews.
Jordan was twice recognized by the NYPD for meritorious service and his courtroom work has been quoted by publications including the New York Times, Guardian, Wall Street Journal, New York Post, and New York Daily News, and covered by CNN, BBC, CNBC, and 48 Hours.
Jordan received his J.D. from Vanderbilt Law School and his B.A. from the University at Albany.
