Economics Consultant (Antitrust and Competition)

Client Services - Investigations, Disputes & Risk Chicago

At AlixPartners, we move quickly from ideas to action, to help our clients solve their most complex and critical challenges. Our work creates value that has a lasting impact on companies, their people, and the communities they serve. We prize diversity and inclusion, intellectual curiosity, inventiveness, and forward-thinking solutions. We invite you to influence the way we work and to help us define the way we embrace tomorrow.

AlixPartners has a hybrid work framework to support our employees. Under this framework, our consultants may combine AlixPartners office, remote working, and client-site. How this works in practice varies by geography and function based on client and team requirements. As this framework is new post-COVID-19 pandemic, it may also change over time.

Our work in this area, which was recently enhanced through the acquisition of Matrix Economics, spans antitrust litigation, merger review, and policy design.

As a team, we thrive on bringing creative and effective solutions that make a difference to our clients.
