Jason Gabbard, a leading venture capital and middle market M&A lawyer in New York City recently advised AxialMarket on $6.5 million Series A round led by Redpoint Ventures.

The Forefront Law Group was founded by Cravath, Swaine & Moore alumnus Jason Gabbard, along with Don Carlson, who formerly held senior positions at Goldman Sachs and Axiom. The firm focuses on small and medium size enterprises, as well as the institutions that finance and advise them. Forefront is truly a unique firm. Gabbard notes "Our clients love our innovative approach to pricing, and the inversion of BigLaw's staffing model. We staff deals and matters with seasoned attorneys who actually do the work, dispensing with the hordes of inefficient associates and the costs of training them."
Gabbard and Carlson are also active angel investors.
AxialMarket was founded in 2010 by Peter Lehrman, who had worked in private equity with SFW Capital Partners and was part of the founding team at Gerson Lehrman Group.
