Jamie M. Konn


Jamie Konn partners with his clients to efficiently address their challenges, develop creative strategies, and implement practical solutions across a wide range of legal issues.  As a business-minded lawyer, Jamie manages several global client relationships for the firm.

A significant portion of Jamie’s practice is focused on advising private-equity funds and companies in connection with mergers, acquisitions, sales, and other corporate transactions. Over the past 15+ years, Jamie has been involved in hundreds of transactions, with deal values ranging from less than $10 million USD to well over $1 billion USD. Jamie and his team handle all employment-related aspects of those transactions, including purchase agreements, restrictive covenants, employment documentation, due diligence, and workforce integration.

Jamie is responsible for managing the full range of labor and employment needs of the firm’s clients in the Southeast. You will often find him litigating fast-paced restrictive covenant cases or complex executive termination cases before state and federal courts or in arbitration. He regularly advises clients on various issues related to their workforce (e.g., employee complaints and investigations, executive engagement and terminations, restrictive covenants, and federal and state law compliance).  And he represents clients in labor-management disputes and negotiations.

Jamie also works with companies facing activist strategic campaigns (also referred to as corporate campaigns) by coordinating DLA Piper's resources to implement and execute a comprehensive response on a national and global basis. He helps clients develop and execute strategies to manage such campaigns by identifying and evaluating campaign-related conduct, coordinating a response, engaging with shareholders and government policymakers, implementing effective media strategies, and using litigation to combat disruptive activity.

Jamie’s clients range from early-stage companies, to venture capital, to private equity funds and their portfolio companies, to Fortune 500 companies. His clients also come from various industries, such as construction, professional services, retail, technology, insurance, and healthcare.
