DLA Piper advises Worldline for the set up of a strategic partnership with Google

DLA Piper assisted Worldline, a global leader in payment services, in the review and negotiation of several contracts for the setting up of its partnership with Google.

This strategic partnership takes place as part of Worldline’s “Move to Cloud” program to accelerate its digital transformation. Worldline expects to benefit from Google’s high-performance and low-latency infrastructure, thereby enhancing its operational efficiency, optimizing costs, and improving its strategic position.

As part of the partnership, Worldline will also be one of Google’s key payment providers in Europe and multiple geographic zones. Worldline will provide Google’s customers with more advanced payment options, support a wider range of payment networks, and provide a simplified customer experience.

The strategic partnership between Google and Worldline aims at ultimately creating a powerful ecosystem of optimized solutions, with increased value propositions and digital customer experiences for merchants and banks, with the objective to rapidly deliver innovations. By combining their expertise, in-depth knowledge, and resources, Google and Worldline will be able to offer enhanced payment experiences to their respective customers and accelerate their time to market.

Jonathan Rofé, partner at DLA Piper stated: “We were delighted to assist Worldline in this highly strategic project at the forefront of payment and cloud environment evolution, helping legal and contractual aspects of the partnership aligning with our client’s objectives. With our expertise in information technology law, digital and cloud contracts, we have contributed to build a framework for a long-term collaboration between Worldline and Google.”

Jonathan Rofé, partner, and Chloé Martin dit Neuville, associate, advised Worldline in the review and negotiation of the contracts for the elaboration of this partnership and associated documentation.
