About L.E.K. Consulting Asia


Getting to like L.E.K.

Founded in 1983, L.E.K. Consulting is a strategy consulting firm that offers four major capabilities to its clients: strategy, mergers and acquisitions, operations and organizational development and marketing and sales consulting. The firm maintains more than 20 offices around the world, while its clients are global companies that are leaders in their industries, ranging from Fortune 500 members to small businesses. The firm has strength in many major industries: aviation and travel, industrials, building products, biopharmaceuticals and life sciences, retail and consumer products, natural resources, healthcare, media and entertainment, MedTech, surface transport and private equity. 

In the Asia-Pacific region, L.E.K. opened in Australia in 1987 and has continued to open offices across the region, most recently adding an office in Singapore in 2014. Today, the firm has additional locations in Beijing, Chennai, Melbourne, Mumbai, New Delhi, Shanghai, Seoul, Sydney and Tokyo.


Digging in

Underscoring all its services, says L.E.K., are its data-driven capabilities that drive insights. "The most valuable service that L.E.K. provides," the firm says, "is to leverage outstanding analysis to deliver exceptional insights to clients." The firm's data-crunchers dig into the numbers to provide clients with clear, actionable recommendations using advanced research, benchmarking, modeling, analysis and strategy development methods.


Offering a helping hand

L.E.K. takes its responsibilities-especially its social responsibilities-seriously. As part of its environmental and social responsibility program, the firm works with charitable organizations on projects to improve the environment and to strengthen social services. One such client is Medicines for Humanity (MFH), a nonprofit that helps local health care partners implement effective health care initiatives for children and become self-sustaining organizations. L.E.K. worked with MFH to develop a business model that combines health care services and microenterprise lending.

And, when it comes to going green, L.E.K. is more than just talk, working with clients on issues related to climate change, such as policy and regulation, green investments and developing low-carbon business strategies. In January 2008, L.E.K. became carbon neutral, making it the first major consultancy to implement such a policy across its global operations.

The firm's outreach doesn't stop there. In 2011, it began publishing a blog, written by current L.E.K. consultants, on life at the firm. Called the L.E.K. Advisor (http://ask.lek.com), the blog serves as a window into both the company and the consulting profession for those who may be considering applying.
