FTPA supports DiliTrust in the acquisition of Hyperlex

August 30 2022

FTPA assisted DiliTrust, the French leader in secure solutions for legal departments and governance bodies, in its acquisition of Hyperlex.

DiliTrust, publisher and integrator of SaaS software for legal departments, acquires Hyperlex from Elaia, Axeleo Capital, Isai, Kernel Investissements and the founders. An ergonomic and secure online contract management solution designed to structure and accelerate all corporate contractual processes, Hyperlex has already raised €5M since its creation in 2017. The acquisition of this legaltech, which is DiliTrust’s first external growth operation since Cathay Capital, Sagard NewGen and Eurazeo joined the company’s capital last May, will notably enable it to establish itself in Germany.

FTPA assisted DiliTrust with a team led by Bruno Robin and Charles-Philippe Letellier, partners, on M&A, Amélie Cordier on corporate, Sophie Jouniaux, partner, and Dylan Maupas on tax, Hélène Huet, counsel, and Julie Falcon de Longevialle on IP, as well as Alexandre Ebtedaei, partner, and Elvira Martinez, counsel, on employment.

August Debouzy advised Hyperlex’s main shareholders (Elaia Partners, Axeleo Capital, ISAI Gestion, Kernel Investissements and the founders), with Julien Wagmann, partner, Laure Khemiri, counsel, François Richard and Sophie Faulcon on corporate, Philippe Lorentz, partner and Elie Bétard on tax, Florence Chafiol, Grégoire Desrousseaux, partners, Héloïse Jardel and Ariane Seyed-Movaghar on IP/data, Marie-Hélène Bensadoun, partner, and Alexandre Dumortier on labor and employment, as well as Laure Bonin, partner, Emmanuel Le Galloc’h and Driss Tlemcani on financing.

Hogan Lovells also advised DiliTrust and its shareholders, with Stéphane Huten, partner, Pierre- Marie Boya, counsel, Alexandre Jeannerot, Maximien Murino and Raphaël Morin in corporate matters, as well as Thomas Claudel, counsel, in tax matters.
