Client Services - Investigations, Disputes & Risk London

At AlixPartners we solve the most complex and critical challenges by moving quickly from analysis to action when it really matters; creating value that has a lasting impact on companies, their people, and the communities they serve. We prize diversity and inclusion, the intellectually curious, the inventive, and the forward-thinking. We invite you to influence the way we work, and define the way we embrace tomorrow.

What you’ll do

We provide economics-based insights, empirical analysis and expert evidence and testimony. We have worked on high-stakes competition and regulatory cases in dozens of countries and have helped world leading firms with complex commercial issues.

Examples of our work include:

  • representing Visa in High Court litigation on interchange fees and in the European Commission investigation into inter-regional interchange fees;
  • representing PING in its appeal to the UK Competition Appeal Tribunal of a decision by the Competition and Markets Authority. The case involved vertical restraints, specifically an online sales ban relating to custom-fitted golf clubs;
  • supporting Peugeot in the automotive bearings cartel damages litigation at the UK Competition Appeal Tribunal;
  • providing economics support to a range of North-West European energy majors in contract disputes; and
  • advising eir, the Irish telecoms operator, on its strategy regarding a government tender for rural superfast broadband rollout.

We offer our clients a wide range of economics-based advice, drawing on the skills of colleagues outside the Economics team, who are industry authorities, forensic accountants and data analytics experts. This means you will get to work on diverse projects in collaboration with members of other teams.

We also regularly work with high-profile academic advisors to ensure that our analysis reflects the latest insights in the academic literature and employs state-of-the-art empirical techniques.

We are seeking highly-motivated entry-level economists interested in a full-time position in our London office.  All candidates are required to have excellent knowledge of Microeconomics, in particular Industrial Organisation, Advanced Microeconomics or Econometrics.

We will provide you with opportunities to take your economics and econometrics skills from the lecture theatre to the boardroom and courts. You will work alongside our highly-experienced economists as a valued member of the team.

As a new joiner, you will bring fresh insights on complex and meaningful cases, while learning about what really matters to our clients. From the beginning, you will be working face-to-face with clients: all members of our team are client facing - not just spreadsheet facing!  

With the support of senior colleagues, you will be able to improve your skills and deepen your understanding of economics, so that you can deliver influential work and progress on your own merit.

This description is not designed to encompass a comprehensive listing of required activities, duties or responsibilities.

What you’ll need

  • A post-graduate degree, either Master’s or PhD, in Economics or Econometrics; preferably with a focus on industrial organization, microeconomics, or applied econometrics.
  • A mix of analytical rigour, the ability to apply economic theory to a wide range of practical problems, and strong communication skills.
  • An intellectually curious, pragmatic, and results-focused approach, with the ability to operate on a range of local and international engagements.
  • Willingness to work outside of normal U.S. business hours, and in particular as unique projects/needs arise.
  • Ability to work full time in an office and remote environment.
  • Ability to work full time in an office and remote environment; physically able to sit/stand at a computer and work in front of a computer screen for significant portions of the workday
