Faegre Drinker advised EPAM Systems, Inc.— a leading global provider of digital platform engineering and software development services — in the company’s acquisition of Ricston Ltd., expanding EPAM’s global Application Programming Interface (API) practice and salesforce capabilities. This was the second international acquisition on which Faegre Drinker’s London office has advised EPAM.
Ricston, which has offices in the U.K., Malta and Spain, provides a variety of services across the full cycle of digital transformation, including legacy modernization, software integration, Open API and Centre for Enablement (C4E). They also provide training and operations for the Anypoint Platform™ as well as a dedicated team that builds connectors.
EPAM's newly expanded capabilities in API and microservices will provide customers a proven approach to API strategy and delivery, expanding Mulesoft expertise and enriching EPAM's service offerings around the entire salesforce ecosystem.
The Faegre Drinker deal team was led by corporate partner Melanie Wadsworth and associate Anam Hai, and included attorneys Scarlett Diamond, Charlotte Marshall, Alex Denny, Hodon Anastasi and Philip Novak. A team from GVZH Advocates, led by Kurt Hyzler and Katia Cachia, advised EPAM on the Malta law aspects of the transaction.
The Ricston sellers were represented by MAMO TCV and WH Partners.
