M&A boutiques are the place to be. According to a missive from information provider Dealogic, they've accounted for 38% of all the fees earned in M&A so far this year. Over the same period of 2013, they accounted for 31% of the global fee pool.

However, there are boutiques and there are boutiques. Many boutiques are sector focused. Others are staffed by two ex-bulge bracket M&A bankers and their nephews. Others are international power houses which are boutiques in all but name.

If you want to work for boutiques in the latter category (the big-hitting, big fee-earning, generic players), we suggest you look at the lists below. These are the top boutiques (by fees earned year-to-date) in North America and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), according to Dealogic.
