The shift to boutiques is being driven by multinational corporations' desire for lower fees, more specialized expertise and a need for more responsiveness from outside counsel, according to a survey last month of 307 business leaders from companies in the U.S., U.K. and Europe by business services marketplace Globality Inc.
