Unique Opportunity
The focus of Analysts’ time is spent working within small, focused teams on merger and acquisition assignments, financial restructuring engagements and/or private placement opportunities. Analysts are often able to work across more than one of Lexington\'s business practices over the course of the Analyst lifecycle and will have an integral role working on multiple projects at any one time.
