Methodology/Sources: These data were compiled by ALM Legal Intelligence, the research arm of the NLJ's parent, ALM Media LLC . We asked respondents to the NLJ's annual survey of the nation's largest law firms (the "NLJ 350") to provide a range of hourly billing rates for partners and associates. For firms that did not supply data to us, in many cases we were able to supplement billing rate data derived from public records. In total, we have rates for 159 of the nation's 350 largest firms. Rates data include averages, highs and low rates for partners and associates. Information also includes the average full-time equivalent (FTE) attorneys at the firm and the city of the firm's principal or largest office.
This methodology has been modified since first published to note that the data cited were compiled by ALM Legal Intelligence, the research arm of the NLJ's parent, ALM Media LLC.
