The National Law Journal asked the respondents to its 2004 survey of the nation’s 250 largest law firms to provide hourly billing rate information for partners and associates firmwide and in their principal offices. The firms that supplied this information-including some firms that are not in the NLJ 250-are listed below in alphabetical order. The number after a firm’s name indicates the total number of attorneys at the firm. The city listed below the name of a firm is the location of the firm’s principal office or its largest office. Unless otherwise indicated, the rates provided are firmwide rates; an asterisk indicates rates at the principal or largest office only.
