French speaking Transactions Advisory Directors

Alvarez & Marsal, London & Paris

A&M Transaction Advisory Group (TAG) is the largest transaction advisory practice outside the audit firms. TAG includes over 350 professionals in 22 offices throughout the U.S., Europe, Latin America and Asia Pacific. A&M’s deep operational and industry expertise provides TAG with a unique opportunity to perform “smarter” due diligence by providing an integrated and differentiated approach. We are free from audit conflicts and our platform is less restrictive, enabling us to operate cross-border seamlessly.

Our pan European TAG practice is now highly active in France, working for premium clients on high profile deals:  large and mid-cap private equity, fast growth premium small cap deals, multinational corporates, and French LBO’s. Our work comprises French situations and cross border activity in addition to international situations around the world.

Our pan European team is expanding, and we are looking for French speaking Directors to join our London or Paris based teams.  

If you are a fluent French speaker based in London, then this is an exceptional opportunity to remain in London while building up a network and reputation in the French marketplace by working on high profile French projects. This could also represent a longer-term opportunity for a move to France to work within our established Paris based TAG team.

If you are a fluent French speaker based in France or elsewhere in the world then this is an exceptional opportunity to relocate to London, gain exposure to the pan European marketplace, work on cross border deals while utilising and building on your existing language skills
