As an undergraduate, he attended the University of Edinburgh majoring in Philosophy pursuant to an English Speaking Union Fellowship.

He lectured extensively at law schools on antitrust and other topics, including the University of Virginia and Beijing University, Peoples Republic of China.

He practiced antitrust law for more than 30 years and provided counseling on many types of business arrangements from mergers and acquisitions to joint ventures and marketing arrangements. He also litigated civil antitrust actions in federal courts across the United States.

Jeff devoted a major portion of his practice to the application of the antitrust laws to intellectual property rights, licensing and pools, as well as to regulated entities undergoing deregulation, including telecommunications companies and electric and gas utilities.

He devoted substantial time to the antitrust issues faced by newly emerging technologies, such as those involving the Internet, biotechnology, and high-speed broadband.
