Microsoft Strategy for Hiring Outside Counsel

Thanks to the team at Bloomberg Law for their article discussing Microsoft's change in strategy for hiring outside counsel.

Its a very interesting shift in strategy... "the new program will prioritize law firms with expertise in specific practice areas rather than general services, and will experiment with so-called 'affinity relationships,' in which expert panels of firms will be asked to provide the company with advice on issues from a variety of perspectives.'

The strategy is certainly one way to address the question of value, with services targeted at solving very specific problems.
