U.S. lawyers have been spending a little more of their workday on billable hours this year, compared with the last three years, but continue to devote two-thirds of their time to non-billable matters.

According to a 2022 Legal Trends Report made public this week by Clio, a Canadian company that provides cloud-based practice management for firms, U.S. lawyers are putting 33% of an eight-hour day, or 2.6 hours, on billable hours—a statistic known as the utilization rate. The rate was 31% for the last three years.
