In today’s fast paced global market timing is everything. You want to protect, grow or transform your business. To meet these challenges we offer clients small teams of highly qualified experts with profound sector and operational insight. Our clients include corporate boards and management, law firms, investment banks, investors and others who appreciate the candor, dedication, and expertise of our teams.

Our economists help clients tackle important antitrust, litigation, regulatory and commercial challenges. In these situations, the outcome often depends on a proper understanding of relevant economic theory and a rigorous approach to collating and assessing empirical evidence. We support companies and their counsel by providing expert evidence, testimony and advice to address the most critical issues when it really matters. Our clients benefit from the responsiveness and resources of a global firm. We also draw on an academic affiliate network with specialist capabilities. Credible economic analysis often also depends on robust evidence on accounting and data issues, and extensive industry knowledge. Accordingly, our economists work closely with our forensic accounting, data analytics, e-discovery and industry experts to provide an integrated approach.

AlixPartners has offices throughout the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Asia. Because we operate as a single entity with a shared culture and incentives, we can quickly build and deploy the right team for your situation from among all of our locations as required.

Our reputation is founded on a history of landmark cases and market-shaping decisions. But we don’t take our position for granted. The challenges that our clients face push us to think and work ever more creatively.

As markets become more competitive, our clients have to find new ways to grow their businesses and to add value for their owners. And we enable them to do that.
