Eight International, a global advisory organisation specializing in transactions, restructuring and transformation, has bolstered its presence in the UK with the addition of FRP – one of the leading specialist business advisory firms in the UK, as a member firm.
With over 500 team members, including 75 partners, FRP is one of the UK’s largest independent business advisory firms specialising in corporate restructuring, corporate finance, forensic services, pensions advisory and debt advisory.

As part of Eight International, FRP will support other member firms and their clients on UK related matters, whilst being able to offer a truly international offering to its clients.
Speaking of the partnership, Geoff Rowley FRP’s CEO said: “Eight International is a high quality, global advisory organisation with a growing reputation and increasing reach. We share many of the same values, have a culture closely aligned to other member firms and our services are highly complementary to those within the wider network. We’re looking forward to becoming an active member of Eight International, helping to better support our clients on international matters while contributing to the growth and development of Eight International as it becomes a leading global independent business advisory organisation.”

Today this demand is even greater as the world seems to have fewer boundaries, even in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. We are extremely pleased that FRP, a company with such a position in the market, that is trusted by its clients and that fully shares our vision and approach. joins our global family and will contribute to our development.” – said Pascal Raidron, President of Eight International.
