DLA Piper advises Paradox in its acquisition of Traitify

DLA Piper represented Paradox, a global conversational recruiting software firm that helps companies simplify hiring through automation with a human touch, in its acquisition of Traitify, the world’s fastest, mobile-first talent assessment platform.

Paradox allows talent acquisition teams to dedicate more meaningful time to prospective candidates by automating administrative tasks like screening, interview scheduling and communications through fast, simple, mobile-first interactions. Paradox’s acquisition of Traitify will allow Paradox to further simplify the hiring process with a visual-based assessment that candidates can complete in mere minutes.

“Having represented Paradox since its incorporation, we were excited to combine our extensive knowledge of the client with our M&A and technology sector experience to advise Paradox on this transaction,” said David Lewis, the DLA Piper partner who led the deal team.

“DLA Piper was instrumental in getting this deal across the finish line,” said Stephanie King, Chief Legal Officer of Paradox and former DLA Piper Corporate partner. “As always, we are incredibly grateful for the firm’s support and look forward to working with the DLA Piper team on Paradox’s next acquisition.”

The DLA Piper team representing Paradox was led by Lewis and associate Vincent Schiavoni (both of Phoenix), and included partners Jeffrey Aronson, Nathaniel McKitterick, Eileen O’Pray and Blake Jackson (all of Silicon Valley), Julia Kovacs (Washington, DC) and Dawn Stern (Washington, DC); of counsel Nia Brown (Washington, DC) and Lael Bellamy (Atlanta); senior attorney Micala Bernardo (Dallas); managing attorney Jake Abrahams (Austin); and associates Patrick Burri, Lori Marsh and Nick Gerlach (all of Silicon Valley), Jordan Chisek (San Francisco) and Xingshuo Liu (Los Angeles).

With more than 1,000 corporate lawyers globally, DLA Piper helps clients execute complex cross-border transactions seamlessly while supporting clients across all stages of development. The firm has been rated number one in global M&A volume for 11 consecutive years, according to Mergermarket.
