Manager - Restructuring Practice

Alvarez & Marsal

London

The regulatory changes impacting audit practices in the U.K. and Europe are having a significant impact on traditional Restructuring practices. Identifying this as an opportunity for growth, A&M is expanding its Restructuring reach with the stated aim of quickly becoming the first global, independent, full service Restructuring advisor.

Our heritage is restructuring, but for over 30 years we have grown from a premier restructuring boutique to a global consulting firm with more than $1 billion in revenues. Over the course of time we have experienced the shifts in the various regulatory environments around the world.

Establishing a presence in Europe over ten years ago, the European business now has some 600 staff in a broad range of professional services including: Corporate Transformation, Financial Institutions Advisory, Tax and Disputes & Investigation Services as well as a market leading Private Equity route to market servicing Transaction Advisory and Portfolio Company Performance Improvement.  More recently, the European Restructuring team has focused on big ticket company side financial restructuring and CRO appointments, within the last year delivering on some of the largest European restructuring cases such as Abengoa, Edcon and Isolux.

The regulatory changes impacting audit practices in the U.K. and Europe are having a significant impact on the Restructuring practices of the Big 4 accounting firms which create an obstacle for the practitioners to fully realize their potential. We believe that the beneficiaries of the disruption will be non-audit consulting firms such as Alvarez & Marsal. Identifying this as an opportunity for growth, A&M is expanding its Restructuring reach to offer the full range of services with the stated aim of quickly becoming the first global, independent, full service Restructuring advisor.

We are looking for individuals with 3 to 6 years restructuring experience working on restructuring advisory (lender or company-side) or insolvency (formal insolvency or contingency planning) assignments.
