Covington Advises IMS in Acquisition of HedgeOp

February 23, 2012

LONDON, 23 February, 2012 — Covington & Burling LLP represented IMS Consulting Group Limited in its agreement to acquire HedgeOp Compliance, LLC.

HedgeOp is the leading provider of specialised compliance software and consulting services for investment advisers in the United States. IMS is a leading European governance, risk and compliance services group.

The merger increases the company’s capability to holistically deliver global compliance services via HedgeOp’s compliance software subsidiary, EvenWheel Solutions, the successful cloud-based regulatory solutions platform currently services about 150 firms and over 3,000 users on its employee filing platform. Under the agreement, HedgeOp will now operate as HedgeOp Compliance - an IMS Group company from its offices in New York, Boston and San Francisco.

The Covington team was led by Kristian Wiggert, with assistance from Karen Brooks, Hannah Billson and Kate Milson in London and Patrick Manchester in New York. Rob Heller provided tax advice.
