About L.E.K. Consulting Europe

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 an on the ground presence on five continents and 13 countries, while its clients are global companies that are leaders in their industries, ranging from Fortune 500 members to small businesses. In the U.S., the firm has strength in major industries: aviation and travel, industrials, building products,biopharma and life sciences, retail and consumer products, healthcare, media and entertainment, MedTech and private equity. 

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 deep industry expertise and rigorous analysis to deliver fresh insights with real impact to clients." The firm's teams dig into each assignment with open minds, and apply sophisticated analysis, to provide clients with clear, actionable recommendations for its strategy consulting engagements. 

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 annually works with a non-profit organization. L.E.K. was recently recognized with a Consulting Magazine Achievement Award for Excellence in Social & Community Investment for its pro bono work with Zen Hospice Project (ZHP), a Buddhist-centered home for contemplative end-of-life care in San Francisco.  An L.E.K. team developed, in collaboration with ZHP, a strategic path forward for ZHP to expand the scope of its mandate and its reach in the marketplace. 

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.
