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.
AlixPartners requires COVID-19 vaccination as a condition of employment for this position, subject to reasonable accommodation.
The Economics Consulting practice of the Investigation, Disputes, and Risk community is hiring consultants to expand our capabilities in competition economics.

As a team, we thrive on bringing creative and effective solutions that make a difference to our clients.
We are looking to fill several full-time Senior Vice President positions in our Investigation, Disputes, and Risk community. The firm offers a positive workplace, a competitive compensation package that includes an excellent benefit program (health, vision, dental, disability, 401K, tuition reimbursement), and opportunities for formal and informal mentoring. Consultants may be based in Boston, MA, New York, NY, Washington, DC, Chicago, IL, or Dallas, TX. Relocation assistance may be available if needed.
