Allen & Overy advises the international consultancy firm BIP on the acquisition of fintech consultancy Riskcare

Allen & Overy has advised the international consultancy firm BIP on the acquisition, through Chaucer, a UK consultancy firm specialising in digital transformation and part of the BIP Group since 2020, of Riskcare, a consultancy firm specialising in capital markets and with offices in London and New York.

With almost 30 years of experience, Riskcare is today a leader in Fintech, with an innovative approach in the capital markets sector. The acquisition of Riskcare is a further step in the BIP Group’s expansion in the UK, accelerated in 2020 with the entry of Chaucer, and guarantees a further widening of BIP’s offer in the country, where it enjoys an enviable portfolio of customers in the Energy, Pharma and PA sectors (where experience with law enforcement is a fundamental strength), financial services, legal and manufacturing and supports companies in digital transformation processes.

With a global turnover of EUR347 million as of 30 September 2021, BIP now employs more than 4,000 professionals in the main European, American and Middle Eastern countries.

Allen & Overy's cross-border team was led by partner Paolo Nastasi, supported by senior associate Chiara De Luca, associate Enrico Roveda and trainee Chiara Pinto, as well as counsel Harsha Kumar and associate Joshua Cohen of A&O London, in coordination with BIP’s Group General Counsel Lodovico Bianchi Di Giulio.
