Haynes and Boone Advises Longtime Client HRsmart In Its Sale to Deltek


A team of Haynes and Boone, LLP lawyers recently advised HRsmart – a leading provider of global unified talent management solutions – in its sale to Deltek, Inc.

The combination will allow Deltek to broaden its Human Capital Management offering and become a significant player in the Talent Management market, delivering a cloud-based, unified talent management platform for recruiting, onboarding, training, compensating and developing employees – key processes that are critical to the success of all people-driven organizations.

The reverse merger transaction caps more than 15 years of Haynes and Boone’s representation of HRsmart, a company formed with the firm’s assistance and nurtured throughout its history as a completely self-funded entity.

“Over the life of our relationship, at least 139 lawyers from virtually every Haynes and Boone practice group have chipped in to assist this company on its way to this profitable exit,” said Houston Partner Bradley Richards, who led the HRsmart team. “Eventually the company was able to become an international force in the unified talent management solutions marketplace with operations in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, England, France, Germany, Lebanon, the Philippines and elsewhere.

“It has been an amazing and very gratifying run for both HRsmart and our firm.”

Richards said the sale to Deltek involved a wide variety of Haynes and Boone lawyers. They included Houston Partners Matt Deffebach, Kendall Hollrah, Jesse Gelsomini and Dean Schaner; Houston Associates Valisa Berber-Thayer, Brian Giovannini, Punam Kaji, Brent Shultz, Simin Sun and Andrew Walton; Dallas Associates Anna Blair, Gavin George, Janet Ayyad Ismael and Marc Legrand; Dallas Counsel Michael Threet; Houston Counsel Marilyn Doolittle; and Dallas Foreign Associate Andre Berzins.
