The 'Energy Attorney Hourly Rate Report 2017' examines the hourly rates of Attorneys (Partners, Counsel, Senior Associates and Associates) at the Law Firms most active in the Energy Industry.  Rates are analyzed by Individual Firm, Firm Revenue Size Group (Top 10, 50, 100, 101-200) and Firms outside of those traditional rankings – Non-US Firms such as Magic Circle Firms, large Regionals, small and middle-market firms and boutiques.  Additionally, the Report slices the data by City to highlight geographical pricing differences.  As you will see, hourly rates by Firm and Position will vary. 

If Technology is the backbone of the global economy, then Energy is the blood.  Energy now and going forward will be ever more important - both traditional oil & gas especially with the massive reserves of natural gas in North America and green alternatives.  Energy embodies almost all major practice areas of Law – Corporate, Litigation, Environmental, Regulatory, Insurance, Transportation and Antitrust and although energy prices from all sources will fluctuate the demand for legal services will continue as will hourly rates and fees.

A word on the author's research and compilation methodology. The research team identifies hourly rates by individual timekeeper that are publicly disclosed. About 2,000 hourly rates per week of attorneys and support staff for over 1,200 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 our 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 no rates appear for a given field (Year or Position), an algorithm is used to estimate a rate or rates.  In Section 5, The Relative Rate Rankings Section, we calculated the average Partner hourly rate from 2014 – 2016 for each Firm. The author 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.
