Recruits from three major Atlanta firms have helped DLA Piper’s 10-month-old Atlanta office quickly build a thriving venture capital practice.
In the fourth quarter of 2006, the team worked 11 venture capital deals that raised a total of $68.7 million for their clients, said Jeffrey M. Leavitt, who gave up a partnership with Arnall Golden Gregory to become a partner at DLA Piper last May. He was joined by new partners Douglas R.

But four were new clients, Leavitt said.
