Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) is the leading independent global professional services firm. We deliver world-leading performance improvement and advisory consulting – for restructuring, transformation, and healthy company situations. This allows organisations to transform operations, catapult growth and accelerate results through decisive action.


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 practice with the stated aim of quickly becoming the first global, independent, full service Restructuring advisor.


A&M’s European business has over 800 staff offering a broad range of professional services including: Corporate Transformation, Financial Services Advisory in addition to a market leading Transaction Advisory and Performance Improvement practices.  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.
