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, marketing and sales and strategy activation consulting. The firm maintains an on the ground presence on five continents and 12 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: biopharma and life sciences, building products, consumer products, digital and technology, food and beverage, healthcare, industrials, MedTech, private equity, retail, and travel 

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. Since 2006 L.E.K. has been driving social impact through its pro bono initiative. In 2016 the firm doubled its commitment to support two pro bono clients annually in the U.S. For example, L.E.K. recently completed a project with the Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF), whose biggest goal is to eliminate Parkinson’s disease (PD) in our lifetime. A team of consultants helped MJFF to better understand the potential of wearable and mobile technology and their use in R&D efforts. Ultimately, the development of an evergreen tool to evaluate and prioritize mobile technologies has the potential to significantly reduce costs for PD research and touch the lives of millions of people worldwide living with PD. The work has earned L.E.K. and MJFF a Consulting Magazine Excellence in Social & Community Investment Award.
