Toronto, ON – Hennepin Partners announced it has successfully advised viGlobal on its acquisition by Aderant, a division of Roper Technologies. Hennepin Partners served as viGlobal’s exclusive financial advisor. Lathrop GPM and Stikeman Elliot LLP acted as legal counsel. Based in Toronto, Ontario, viGlobal is the leading provider of strategic people management software to law and professional services firms.

viGlobal’s robust, modern SaaS offering is built to handle all the complexities of hiring, developing, and managing talent for professional services organizations. How professional services firms attract and manage their people directly correlates to how effectively they service clients, making viGlobal a natural fit to join the growing Aderant product suite with the purpose of helping customers run better businesses across the board.

“In today’s market, to run a better business, you must have strong people management,” said Chris Cartrett, CEO of Aderant. “We are thrilled to be adding viGlobal, a leading people management platform in the professional services market, to the Aderant product family. Bringing viGlobal into the Aderant fold will help us more fully deliver on our goal of holistically supporting law firm leadership as they tackle their most important business challenges. viGlobal’s strong product suite combined with Aderant’s front- and back-office solutions will create stronger integrations for talent management, matter management, and resource planning.”

Andrew Talpash, Co-Founder and President & CEO of viGlobal, will continue to consult with Aderant following the acquisition. He remarked, “viGlobal has established an excellent reputation in the people management software space, successfully helping professional services firms to hire, develop, and retain the people they cannot afford to lose. We are incredibly excited to be joining the Aderant family and are looking forward to both our people and technology becoming a part of their winning team and suite of solutions.”

Paul Vander Vort, Managing Director at Hennepin Partners commented, “It was an extreme professional honor to advise Andrew and his team. They built an amazing company – a true leader in the people management space. We are so excited for Andrew with this outcome and really believe viGlobal is very well positioned for continued success as part of the Aderant family.”

Andrew Talpash added “I’ve had a relationship with Paul for years, and when the time came to choose an advisor, he was my first call – especially given his team’s expertise and track record of successfully advising other Legal and HR Tech businesses. Paul and his team were true shoulder-to-shoulder partners throughout the process and consistently went above and beyond to understand, refine, and effectively convey the viGlobal story. I would recommend Hennepin Partners without hesitation to other business owners thinking about exploring their strategic options.”
