Sacha Ross and Ariel Rom led the Cooley team advising DailyPay on the investments, which propelled the fintech company to unicorn status.

Carrick Capital Partners led the round, which also included participation from existing investors. The company will invest its newly raised capital in new market opportunities for its technology platform, in addition to extending its market leadership position in on-demand pay among the largest employers in the world.
