Jeffrey M. Leavitt

DLA Piper LLP

Jeff Leavitt works with emerging growth companies, venture and growth capital investment entities and mature technology companies. Before moving to Atlanta, Jeff co-founded Axiom Legal, Inc., a venture backed software company in New York City.

Jeff began his career at an international law firm in New York, where he helped consummate several high-profile transactions, including the merger of the Qwest and US West corporations and the merger of the Exxon and Mobil corporations, each the largest in history when announced. He also negotiated several transactions for Morgan Stanley’s and CSFB’s private investment arms.

The respected legal publisher Chambers & Partners has repeatedly recognized Jeff in Chambers USA, and noted he is “talented” and “well placed to advise emerging growth and technology companies.” He possesses a “unique set of contacts in this industry,” and “understands the dynamics of the venture capital space.”

One interviewee described him as a “fantastic attorney with a unique background of working with small companies.” Jeff “is ‘very well integrated into the community’ and earns praise for going ‘above and beyond’ for his clients.” He has the ability, according to one source, to “get us in the door with investors where we might not otherwise have the contacts.”

Jeff is a graduate of the Kauffman Fellows Program, a highly competitive national fellowship akin to a Rhodes Scholarship for venture capital professionals. He was the first JD ever accepted into the program. Kauffman Fellows receive two years of specialized training in venture capital investment techniques and develop an extensive network throughout the private equity industry. Jeff is the only practicing attorney in the country to have completed the Kauffman program.

Jeff’s fellowship was hosted at Alliance Technology Ventures, where he focused on investment assessment, deal structuring, company fundraising strategies and exit modeling. Jeffrey was a board observer with several ATV portfolio companies, including SecureWorks, RF Solutions, Omniguide and Xytrans.

Jeff was appointed in 2006 to the faculty of the Venture Capital Institute, a worldwide education foundation and training program for venture and private equity professionals.
