ABSTRACT
This article presents information related to software giant Microsoft Corp. that is in the middle of a global review of its law firms as it attempts to control spiraling legal costs caused mainly by its endless antitrust and patent litigation. It is understood that it has frozen hourly rates until the selection process is completed. Those firms chosen so far have had to conform to a whole new set of terms and conditions, which include demonstrating a commitment to diversity. With Microsoft's antitrust battles against the European Commission showing no sign of settling any time soon, the focus has switched to Europe.
