About AlixPartners, LLP

AlixPartners is an international business advisory firm that built its reputation through its work in corporate turnaround and restructuring. Now, with over 30 years of history behind it, the firm has diversified its business and provides services in four areas: Enterprise Improvement, Turnaround and Restructuring, Financial Advisory and Information Management. Although the firm is often associated with reversing the fortunes of companies in high-impact situations, it offers a broad range of consulting services for companies that are not in financial straits but are looking to improve operations and performance. Operating globally out of offices in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, AlixPartners has been retained by at least half of the Fortune 100 and many of the world's other largest companies, as well as mid-sized public and private companies, private equity firms, top law firms and public entities. Best of all for its clients, AlixPartners works on a pay-for-performance system, aligning its compensation structure with its clients' success. 

There must be a better way

Jay Alix & Associates PC was founded by Jay Alix in 1981, when he observed that companies in trouble needed help saving assets and jobs and had little resources for doing so. The company's early years included aiding notable clients such as DeLorean Motor Company, of Back to the Future fame, and Phoenix Steel Corporation. The firm began to evolve in the 1990s, taking on more staff and serving major clients, such as Unisys, Phar-Mor and General Motors' National Car Rental subsidiary, and it expanded from 33 employees to over 100. 

In 2002 the firm changed its name to AlixPartners to reflect the firm's central premise that it is a partner to it employees, clients and referral sources. Although originally based in Detroit, New York and Chicago, the firm expanded rapidly into Europe and then Asia. AlixPartners now has over 1,000 employees and 17 offices in eight countries.
