SEATTLE, March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Three nationally recognized legal administration experts today announced the formation of a new firm, JND Legal Administration, and the immediate acquisition of two of the country's fastest growing, premier legal administrators, Class Action Administration LLC and, bankruptcy claims agent, Upshot Services LLC, both based in Denver.
Jennifer Keough, Neil Zola and David Isaac have reunited to launch JND after previously working together for 15 years at Garden City Group (GCG), one of the then largest legal administration firms in the country. Their high profile cases included BP/Deepwater Horizon, Indian Trust Settlement, WorldCom Securities, and the American Airlines bankruptcy.
At JND, the three legal administration experts will once again pool their strengths to guide their own firm in administering large-scale class action, bankruptcy and mass tort cases. Reinforced by their new acquisitions, Class Action Administration and Upshot, JND will offer significant advantages with cutting-edge technology solutions, unparalleled consulting services and unmatched responsiveness.
"We carefully researched a number of companies for potential acquisition and selected Class Action Administration and Upshot because they best suit the model of excellence we are seeking," said JND co-founder Neil Zola. "We also like that both of these companies are located in Denver where we can gain significant synergies."
JND co-founder Jennifer Keough will assume the role of CEO and Neil Zola and David Isaac will serve as co-chairmen of newly acquired Class Action Administration. Matt Pohl will continue as president of Class Action Administration where he has managed hundreds of cases over the last 15 years and served many times as an expert in data analytics. For five consecutive years Class Action Administration has been recognized by the Legal Times as one of the "Best" claims administrators.
Upshot, JND's other acquisition, is the bankruptcy market's most innovative claims and noticing agent. Upshot introduced industry firsts like electronic balloting, electronic claims filing and live, online chat support. "Upshot was founded by two young stars, Travis Vandell and Robert Klamser who honed their skills at the legal administration firm KCC. They are now building one of the fastest growing bankruptcy claims agents in the business," said Jennifer Keough.
"Having joined forces with the teams at Class Action Administration and Upshot, JND is now poised and ready to handle the kinds of big complex matters we have managed throughout our careers," said JND co-founder David Isaac.
