Our story

The founding partners of Valeocon shared an audacious dream of creating a global, client-focused company that delivered a different, collaborative client experience. Through this, Valeocon Management Consulting was born, with offices in Hamburg, Milan, New York, Paris and Singapore.
The footprint of the business continued to grow, with further offices in Tokyo, London and Warsaw. The shape of the practice also evolved, with the Innovation practice (established in 2006) developing rapidly, also followed by the Digital practice some years later.
Early 2015
As Valeocon continued to make waves, another company, Baseline, was launched as the management consultancy arm of international law firm Bird & Bird. The focus was on supporting clients with complex issues arising from major transformational IT programs.
Late 2015
Later that year, Baseline and Valeocon joined forces, with Valeocon providing support on a series of compliance implementation and change management projects.
The relationship between the two firms was formalized, with Valeocon partner Edoardo Monopoli appointed in October as the new Baseline CEO. The Baseline team worked closely with Bird & Bird lawyers and Valeocon consultants to develop solutions combining legal and management consultancy expertise.
Three years later, and 15 years since Valeocon was founded, the two firms aligned their ambitions for growth and decided to merge as one. OXYGY, a new breed of consulting company, was born, with a vision of transforming businesses through a fresh approach and offering. Today, OXYGY is one of the largest management consultancy names linked to any international law firm.

OXYGY helped bring their ideas to life
I highly rate OXYGY’s expertise in capability building and change management. What makes the OXYGY team truly stand out though is their collaborative approach. Their ability to engage my team and organization means those colleagues of mine who have to make new organization solutions work are already committed to the new solutions by the time we launch them because OXYGY helped bring their ideas to life during the solution development process. In doing so OXYGY helped us tailor solutions to the expertise and needs of the organization and the latest thinking across the industry. A truly exceptional approach.
