SAN FRANCISCO — Shearman & Sterling represented Salesforce.com Inc. in its agreement to purchase e-commerce platform developer Demandware Inc. for $2.8 billion. The deal—the largest purchase for Salesforce in its 17-year history—values Burlington, Mass.-based Demandware at $75 a share. San Francisco-based partners Steve Camahort and Michael Dorf led the Shearman & Sterling team, which included several attorneys in San Francisco, Menlo Park, New York and Washington, D.C. The firm has represented Salesforce since 2014, and Dorf has advised the company on multiple private acquisitions, and he has represented Salesforce Ventures through several investments.

Camahort and Dorf could not be reached for a phone interview, said a Shearman & Sterling press representative. A statement provided via email on behalf of the partners said that the Shearman & Sterling team and in-house counsel at Salesforce worked “around the clock leading up to and over the holiday weekend to get the deal signed yesterday.”

The Shearman & Sterling team included partners Laurence Crouch, Jordan Altman, Doreen Lilienfeld, Matthew Berkowitz, Beau Buffier and Gus Atiyah. Multiple associates and counsel provided assistance.

The deal expands Salesforce’s current customer relations management products. Demandware provides a cloud-based e-commerce service that allows customers to manage their online shopping websites and mobile applications. The company counts Design Within Reach and L’Oreal as customers. In a news release, Salesforce said it expects the purchase to increase company revenue by $100 million to $120 million for its fiscal year 2017.

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr represented Demandware. The team, led by Boston-based partner Mark Borden, included partners Jay Bothwick, Michael Bevilacqua, R. Scott Kilgore and Hartmut Schneider, along with associates and counsel. The Wilmer attorneys work in the Boston, New York and Washington, D.C. offices.

Borden also represented Demandware on its $88 million initial public offering in 2012.
