network for corporate clients to use across the globe.

much like Hull McGuire: high-end corporate boutiques who work
internationally," Hull said. "BDG firms are carefully screened
to ensure quality and attentive customer service." "Fortune
500 clients are using the IBLC’s Business Development Group rather
than using traditional large law firms -- with much higher overheads --
for international legal services," according to Hull. "Clients
get high quality legal products with real service and lower price."
