The 2017 Financial Services Outside Counsel Hourly Rate Report identifies the Law Firms hired by the world's largest Commercial Banks, Investment Banks, Venture Capital Firms, Private Equity Firms and Hedge Funds and the fees (hours and hourly rates) paid to them. The Report has 4 Sections: 1) Average Rates By Bank and by Firm 2) Average Rates by Law Firm and Bank Represented 3) Rates by Firm by Practice Area and 4) Rates by City. The world’s largest Law Firms and Banks are covered in the Report.

Despite slow global economic growth, Venture Capital and Private Equity Firms and Hedge Funds will have an exceptional year in 2017. This will positively impact Law Firms specializing in M&A and Corporate Practices mainly. The outlook for Commercial and Investment Banks is less promising due to stagnant lending opportunities and suppressed interest rates. However, for Law Firms, opportunities exist in Regulatory and Litigation.

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 1,000 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 author has no rates for a given field (Year or Position), an algorithm is used to estimate a rate or rates. If a rate year is left blank, then that means that no data or not enough data was available. The report defines 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. Note: USCC abbreviation after a company means Unsecured Creditor’s Committee work in bankruptcy.
