Hype Acquires Lounge

Our Paris Technology team advised Hype, exclusive taxi partner of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, on the acquisition of Lounge, a booking platform dedicated to premium taxis founded by Serge Metz, former CEO of Taxis G7.

Launched in Paris in 2015 at COP 21 in response to the public health emergency of air and noise pollution in urban areas, Hype offers the only 100% zero-emission taxi booking application, at no extra cost compared with polluting taxis, and is developing the first zero-emission mobility platform, integrating production and distribution of green hydrogen.

Hype is now providing the full range of taxi services and confirms its position as a major player in the Parisian taxy industry.

The Goodwin team was led by Xavier Leroux and included Julie Messerig on corporate aspects.
