The National Law Journal asked the respondents to its 2007 survey of the nation’s 250 largest law firms to provide a range of hourly billing rates for partners and associates. The firms that supplied this information � including some firms that are not in the NLJ 250 � are listed below in alphabetical order. We also asked firms to provide average and median billing rates, and several complied. 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 its principal or largest office.
