About AlixPartners, LLP Europe

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 its 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.
