Summer analysts will have active roles in Lazard’s Chicago restructuring practice, joining small transaction teams providing financial advisory services to the firm’s clients. Because restructuring work requires broad financial knowledge, our summer analysts will participate in an on-going, hands-on training program incorporating a variety of financial concepts across capital markets, corporate management, M&A, and valuation, in addition to restructuring subject matters. Our summer analysts will also build fundamental banking skills, including financial analysis and advanced modeling techniques. Day-to-day responsibilities could include financial analysis and modeling, company/industry research, participating in the development of client presentations, and closely interacting with bankers at all levels. Summer analysts will also be invited to join calls and meetings on live deals to provide exposure to the broader restructuring investment banking process. Summer analysts are expected to spend 9 weeks at the Firm.
