We just added 6-7 people from there. My understanding is their work is heavily in two buckets 1. Restructuring 2. Forensics / Investigations As far as I know, they don’t have a ton of “traditional” consulting type of work.

The guys who went to Alix soon returned to A&M. The latter is bigger in Strategy and Performance Improvement than restructuring and turnaround, and around 3 times the size of Alix and recruiting.

K1, first weird to post on something 18 weeks after it was originally posted. 2nd you are not fully accurate, a few did go back but not all 7.
