RX scene in London/Europe

Hello everyone, 

I am finishing my first year at a UK non-target and I am interested in restructuring. I have been able to find a lot of information on the US RX scene, but very little updated info on the RX scene here in London and in Europe in general. 

I was hoping someone could shed some light on:

-what are the best RX banks?

-how do these compare in terms of comps/culture/a2a or exit opp?

-do any of these banks allow to internally transfer to the US?

Thank you!

25okliw, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Have heard in terms of dealflow it is HL/PJT followed by RTH/LAZ/MOE, followed by the rest - can't say if comp works out the same way

Also interested to hear more info on culture/comp and details on dealflow/trajectory e.g. EVR adding to Rx but believe they still mostly do MM deals a rung below the firms above

I work in one of the big 3 Rx consultancies. pjt and HL are the main ones we deal with.

Edit: moelis is prob the 3rd name that comes to mind after those 2. However obvs case dependent. I don't work on all our cases nor do I know all their details so bit biased with my experience / what is shared
