Following a campaign of acquisitions in the UK, Ankura Consulting has shifted to a new office to accommodate its growing headcount. The move to Bishopsgate, London, is also aimed at better accommodating the firm’s global client base.

Founded in 2014 by incumbent CEO Roger D. Carlile, Ankura Consulting is a business advisory firm which provides management consulting and expert services to businesses. Having already grown annual revenues to $50 million by 2016, its offerings include bankruptcy and corporate restructuring, corporate investigation, dispute and litigation support, among other services. The Washington D.C.-headquartered firm has additional offices in New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Dallas, as well as San Juan, Puerto Rico, and London.

Now, as the firm looks to boost its growth prospects in the UK capital – its largest locale beyond US shores – Ankura has announced it has moved its team to a new office. London is the headquarters for Ankura’s business in the Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) and Asia-Pacific (APAC) regions, and the relocation of the London-based team from Woolgate Exchange to a 30,000 square foot space at 55 Bishopsgate in the City of London is aimed at supporting this capacity.

Roger Carlile, Chairman and CEO at Ankura, said, "London is a strategic hub for our efforts to expand globally and enhance our ability to serve our clients around the world, and to grow and enhance our offerings not only in the UK, but also throughout EMEA and APAC. Our new office will enable us to continue to attract top-tier talent, accelerate our growth, and build a broader set of services that meaningfully enhance the results we deliver for our clients."

Michael Stokes, Senior Managing Director at Ankura, added, "We are incredibly excited to welcome our employees to our new office in London… Located in the heart of the city, it provides us with plenty of room for future growth as we look to move into new business lines and expand our core global construction, technology and data, and forensics offerings. Our new office is a clear example of Ankura's steadfast commitment to investing in its global strategy and ensuring that our employees have the tools and resources they need to succeed."

Ankura has also been looking to use acquisition campaigns to inflate its profile in recent times. The firm boosted its global headcount to over 1,400 with the acquisition of Navigant’s Disputes, Forensics and Legal Technology businesses as well as its Transaction Advisory Services practice, as well as c3/consulting in mid-2018.
