Below is a sampling of firms that provided information about the alternative billing methods they use most often. We asked firms to differentiate between variations on the billable hour (discounted and blended hourly rates) and true alternatives to the billable hour. The percentages denote estimated portions of the firms’ revenues obtained through each of these two categories. They are followed by the billing methods that the firms use within those categories. The number after a firm’s name indicates its total number of attorneys. Armstrong Teasdale (266). Variations: 17%-discounted rate, blended rate. Alternatives: 17%-fixed or flat fee, contingency fee.
