About PJT Partners

PJT Partners is an advisory-focused investment bank headquartered in New York. The firm was created in October 2015 after Blackstone's advisory businesses were spun off and combined with PJT Capital LP, a financial advisory firm founded by Paul J. Taubman in 2013. The new company began trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "PJT" on October 1, 2015. 

PJT Partners operates through three main business units: strategic advisory, restructuring and special situations, and Park Hill. The strategic advisory group, led by an experienced team of professionals, delivers solutions to companies and their boards as well as financial sponsors across numerous industries and geographies. The group's services include advice on M&A, capital markets, spin-offs, private placements, structured products, and other transactions. Recent strategic advisory assignments include advising Sky on a cash offer by 21st Century Fox, Blackstone on its sale of Logicor to China Investment Corporation, DigitalGlobe on its sale to MDA, and WestRock on its acquisition of Multi Packaging Solutions. 

The firm's restructuring and special situations group is one of the most well known on Wall Street. Its services include advising companies, creditors, and financial sponsors on recapitalizations, reorganizations, exchange offers, debt repurchases, capital raises, and distressed mergers and acquisitions. In January 2017, International Finance Review named PJT Partners the Restructuring Adviser of the Year. Recent restructuring and special situations clients include Algeco Scotsman, Caesars, CHC Helicopter, Cumulus, iHeartMedia creditors, J.Crew creditors, Kenya Airways, MBIA re: Puerto Rico, Oi S.A., Samson Resources, and Triangle Petroleum. 

Park Hill provides global alternative asset advisory and fundraising services to private equity, real estate, and hedge funds. In addition, Park Hill provides secondary advisory services across all three verticals. Park Hill was ranked No. 1 by Preqin for the total capital raised by known funds in 2015. 

PJT Partners employs approximately 450 people and is led by Paul J. Taubman, its chairman and CEO.
