Yards advises BlaBlaCar on the acquisition of Klaxit


The law firm Yards has advised BlaBlaCar, the world’s leading car-sharing company, on its acquisition of Klaxit, a French home-work car-sharing start-up.

Yards advised on the corporate aspects of the deal, alongside Gide, which handled the M&A and tax aspects.

With this acquisition, BlaBlaCar is strengthening its short-distance car-sharing offering by integrating Klaxit’s business to complement its BlaBlaCar Daily application in the local authority and business services segment.

The Yards Avocats team comprised partners Jean-Philippe Jacob and Eric du Peloux, and associate Kamélia Kerchi.

The Gide team was led by partner Louis Oudot de Dainville and associates Donald Davy and Gabin Beaudor on the M&A aspects, and partner Paul de France on the tax aspects.
