July 6, 2021

New York – July 6, 2021 – Cooley advised Aircall, a cloud-based voice platform helping companies manage customer support and sales calls, on its $120 million Series D financing round, which brings the company’s valuation to more than $1 billion. Lawyers Stephane Levy, Tamim Bazzi and Scott Rudin led the Cooley team advising Aircall.

The growth equity business within Goldman Sachs Asset Management led the round, which also included participation from DTCP, eFounders, Draper Esprit, Adams Street Partners, NextWorld Capital and Gaia Capital Partners. Aircall will use the new capital to enrich its app ecosystem, expand globally, partner with major telecommunications companies and improve technology with new AI capabilities.

"Since the beginning of Aircall, we've helped thousands of companies to enrich their customer experience through voice channels, with more empathy than ever in the past year,” Olivier Pailhes, co-founder and CEO of Aircall, said in a news release. "Now that hybrid, on-site or remote teams are likely here to stay, we'll continue to work to achieve our vision and empower every professional to have richer conversations. With that in mind, the investment by Goldman Sachs and the renewed trust of our current investors validates this vision."

Founded in 2014, Aircall is the phone system for modern business. The company was built to make phone support accessible, transparent and collaborative, with the belief that voice is the most powerful way to communicate with customers, prospects, candidates and colleagues. It is designed to enable delightful moments of human connection using an entirely cloud-based voice platform, integrating seamlessly with popular productivity and helpdesk tools.
