Does anyone have insight on the M&A practice (Transactions Advisory) at Alvarez & Marsal? I received a message from a headhunter on a potential opportunity, but unsure of how prominent the M&A practice is, the typical project size and team, WL balance, culture, etc. I am aware of Alvarez & Marsal being among the maker leaders in restructuring but would love to hear more from someone with more insight.
