FULL METHODOLOGY - NLJ Billing ReportBACK TO SURVEY

ALM Legal Intelligence collected 2016 hourly billing rates for partners, associates and of counsel from the published rates for the 20 largest federal bankruptcy jurisdictions.

Those identified as lawyers or attorneys in the bankruptcy records are listed as associates. Shareholders, members, principals, directors, presidents and owners are listed as partners. The rankings shown are for firms on the 2016 NLJ 500. Average rates are medians. In those instances where only an average is shown (no high or low rates), there was only one rate available for that position at that firm. Locations listed are the largest U.S. offices for firms on the NLJ 500. For non-NLJ 500 firms, the location is one of the firm’s offices listed in the bankruptcy court documents. All rates are rounded to whole numbers.
