Ankura is buying Navigant's Disputes and Investigations practice. Thoughts on this acquisition, particularly from either of those firms?

Ankura is private and Navigant is public. Ankura became global overnight with the buy and obtained 800-900 employees and about $350-400 million annual revenue taking DLFT and TAS. It will be interesting to see if the big clients stick with the Navigant MDs following the buy out or shop for a new provider. There’s at least one giant bank and one giant communications company using Navigant for at least 80% of their work.

Who knows 🤷‍♂️ I think Ankura is, Iv heard navigants ediscovery business was struggling quite a bit but that’s about par for that space

Interesting move. I interviewed with Ankura last year and the problem they were having is getting work but no one to do it - their MD to consultant ratio was about 5:1

A client I worked with is killing to have me come lead their Strategy team. I’m super-comfortable where I am and on a great trajectory. However, the guy has told me they are willing to “give me a sit at the table” if I’m interested in joining them. It’s a Public company, and I have been cracking my head trying to decipher what that statement could mean? Any ideas? Also, are there specific asks I can make to ensure the move is more attractive for me?

Client didn't extend my colleague citing performance reasons. No such feedback or indication was provided for over 6 months(actually received some client appreciation). Very confused, and dejected.

At what point is it okay to ignore work-related emails and messages when you're on vacation? I'm on PTO and have not gone a single day without opening my work laptop. They ask me to work on things when they know I am on PTO. Managers also keep sending meeting invites on my calendar when it's blocked off with out of office.
