Lawyers at Am Law 100 firms who were admitted to their respective bar associations in 2014 are now charging between $530 and $1,695, according to an American Lawyer analysis of bankruptcy billing records from 2024.

The broad spread in compensation for lawyers with a decade of experience underscores the effect of several years of rate hikes at top firms, which now charge more for first-year associates than fellow Am Law 100 firms charge for 10-year attorneys.
