We act as a team – always


Leadership Team

Jim Delkousis

CEO & Founder

Jim founded PERSUIT, in part, to encourage his children not to play it safe, and to follow their dreams. Monkey see, monkey do. He’s also a long time sufferer of imposter syndrome.

Michelle Landy

COO and GC

Michelle is a dynamic global executive and lawyer with over 20 years of experience living & working in the UK, US, and Asia. When she's not doing all things legal tech, she loves going to the theatre & all the cultural experiences NYC has to offer as well as volunteering locally and in East Africa.

Jun Choi


Formerly with Disney and Salesforce, Jun recently led the exit with Glassdoor and Human Security after multiple funding rounds. He is now with PERSUIT to have another exciting and promising journey of making differences. Off work, Jun loves to go to musicals, concerts, and Knicks games while playing baseball and golf every weekend.

David Falstein

VP of Client Strategy and Success

David comes from the legal sourcing world and loves creative pricing models. When he’s not helping clients build the perfect RFP or AFA, David is probably building a sub-par fantasy football team.

John Demelis

Head of Product

John is passionate about building teams that build products that make customers deliriously happy. In his downtime, he enjoys tropical vacations with his family with a particular soft spot for Hawaii.

Jordan Weinstein

VP of Product Growth

Jordan has been implementing technology solutions for law firms and corporate legal departments for over 20 years. When not living and breathing Legal Technology (which often includes boring his wife by talking about data), he's likely taking abuse from his kids, playing ice hockey, or sailing.

Forrest Leighton

VP of Marketing

Forrest is a senior B2B marketing executive with a strong track record of  building and transforming teams into outcome driven machines.  When not working you can find him driving his children somewhere or wondering why he didn't become a rockstar.

Strategic Advisory Board

Jim Moffat

Former Vice Chairman and Global CEO of Deloitte Consulting

"As the previous CEO and Vice Chairman of Deloitte Consulting globally I understand not only the value that can be delivered to corporates around the world but importantly also to the firms and consulting practices globally.  PERSUIT is changing the dynamics of how legal and professional services are acquired."

Dr. Elouise Epstein

Partner, Kearny

"As a specialist partner at Kearney I connect with some of the largest organizations globally on their procurement and supply chain strategies.  PERSUIT have embarked on the uberfication of hundreds of billions of dollars of spend annually. The marketplace capabilities that are being provided are truly exciting and I’m looking forward to being on this journey with Jim and the team at PERSUIT."

Reena Sengupta

Executive Director, RSGI

"I’m so excited to be part of this journey. PERSUIT is the digital manifestation of what I’ve been trying to do with the legal profession for 30 years.  It’s fast becoming the single source of truth.  What’s really novel is that the PERSUIT platform delivers value not just for the corporates but the firms too.  It just does not make sense If you are not working in this way now."

Ron Gill

Operating Partner, Lead Edge Capital

"Having spent years in enterprise software companies, most recently as the CFO of Netsuite I realized quickly that PERSUIT’s ‘Time to Value’ for customers was incredible.  A real game changer that CFO’s cannot ignore.  How could I not be part of such an exciting journey at PERSUIT."

Thomas Barothy

Business of Law’ Innovator & Legal Technologist, Former UBS, Group Legal COO

"I thought I’d seen it all until I discovered PERSUIT.  Having implemented the platform across the UBS global legal team and spent decades as an executive in the financial services industry this was an opportunity too good to be missed to help lead corporates globally on an innovation journey that will transform the way they acquire legal services."
