2021 Investment Banking Summer Associate – Chicago Restructuring


Lazard is a global advisory firm where we compete on intellectual capital, not physical or financial capital. Our Financial Advisory business deals with relevant problems that matter in an increasingly complicated world. As a member of our team, you will work alongside the industry’s most iconic and accomplished practitioners and have a front-row seat to some of the most complex, transformational and marquee deals in the marketplace. Your input will affect the outcome.

You will begin your internship by participating in a week-long comprehensive training program in New York. Following training, you will become an integral member of the Chicago Restructuring group, joining a small team which provides restructuring financial advisory services to our clients.

Over the past decade, Lazard has advised on more than 500 restructurings worldwide, with an aggregate value of over $1 trillion, including many of the largest and most complex. Unlike most other firms, our professionals combine an extensive knowledge of restructuring strategies with M&A expertise, credit analysis skills, capital markets knowledge, industry expertise and negotiation experience in distressed situations.

During the Summer Associate program, our goal is for you to enjoy a uniquely tailored experience which includes accountability to a specific group as well as opportunities for building relationships and skills across other groups at the Firm. You will receive formal mentorship, exposure to our Leadership Team, and are invited to participate in various social and networking events with bankers across the Firm.
