The Insurance Company & Re-Insurance Company Outside Counsel and Policy Holder Counsel Hourly Rate Report 2017 details the Legal Fees paid by the largest insurance companies worldwide - AFLAC, Allstate, Fidelity, Hartford, Lexington, Liberty, Marsh, Metropolitan Life, Primerica, Prudential, Zurich and others to the top 200 Law Firms globally.

The Report has 5 Sections:

1) Rates by Company and Firm
2) Rates by Firm and Company Represented
3) Rates by Practice Area
4) Rates by City
5) Relative Rate Rankings (Highest to Lowest)

In 2017 and further, the outlook for the Insurance and Re-Insurance Industry is moderate but not strong. Slow economic growth, historically low interest rates, lower margins and higher risks all make it difficult for insurance companies to have a break-out year. For Law Firms, practice areas of opportunity include: Litigation, Insurance Defense, Policy Holder Suits, Contracts and possibly Corporate.

A word on the research and compilation methodology. The author has a research team that identifies hourly rates that are publicly disclosed. About 2,000 hourly rates per week of attorneys and support staff at 900 law firms globally are added to the database. Further research is required to “connect the dots” by adding detailed Attorney Profile information and linking the legal work performed to specific Clients and Client Industries. Through this process we are able to provide actionable data to users - law firms and corporate counsel - of the Attorney Hourly Rates and AFA Database and analytical reports, including this one, to make important monetary decisions in terms of legal services offered and purchased.

In terms of the report, not all timekeepers will appear in every year so sometimes average rates may vary; in this case the trend line and averages over the 2011 - 2016 period are the best indicators. In the event that the report has no rates for a given field (Year or Position), an algorithm is used to estimate a rate or rates. And in certain instances, rates from a matter or matters may be substituted when a company’s representation is known but rates are not available. In this instance, those companies and firms are footnoted. The report considers Senior Partners to be ones with 25+ years of experiencing (Law School Graduation Year of 1989 or sooner), Partners with 24 years or less experience and Senior Associates with 5 years or more experience. Of course, those experience levels may vary by firm but seem to work for both large law firms and middle-market ones. Additionally, several companies in the report are neither insurance companies or banks but were involved in litigation related to Insurance (Nature of Suit 110) and / or Banking and Securities (Nature of Suit 850). So, those companies and law firms’ rates were included.
