GCA is pleased to announce that our client SkySlope, a leading provider of digital transaction management and closing solutions to real estate professionals, sold a majority equity stake to Fidelity National Financial (“FNF Group”), a key provider of title insurance and transaction services to the real estate and mortgage industries. This transaction extends our deep real estate and real estate technology sector expertise and is our 14th software transaction since the start of 2017.
