Transactions Advisory is currently experiencing double digit top line growth per year – with A&M Europe recently surpassing its 200 deal milestone, making Transactions Advisory a major driver of business across the firm. Whilst Transactions Advisory Europe has a demonstrable track record of attracting senior and reputable talent exclusively from the Big 4 on a global basis, we have deliberately set out to build a differentiated model, built on the strength of our non-audit conflict freedom and entrepreneurial culture.

Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) is a privately held, owner-operated global professional services firm with a reputation as the world’s leading turnaround management specialist. For over 25 years, A&M has set the standard for working with organisations to solve complex problems, boost performance and maximize value for stakeholders.

 

With our operational focus and market leading capabilities in Restructuring and Turnaround, Transaction Advisory and Private Equity Performance Improvement, we are uniquely placed to take on the challenges of the current market conditions faced by our clients. We work closely with our clients to make informed investment decisions as well as improve the performance of assets they already own - providing independent and objective analysis that goes well beyond traditional due diligence and maximizes value at every point in the transaction lifecycle.

 

Our award winning European Transaction Advisory Group is currently building on its significant success working with Private Equity firms, Financial Institutions and Corporates in London, across Europe and increasingly on a global basis.
