The "Corporate Outside Counsel Pricing Audit Report 2017" allows Corporate General Counsel at any size company to easily compare and contrast what it pays its Outside Counsel – Law Firm by Law Firm – compared to the overall global legal services market thereby allowing companies to negotiate more effectively their annual and multi-year contracts with current market data and in some cases, save significantly on their annual legal spend.

A word on the author's research and compilation methodology. The author has a research team that identifies hourly rates that are publicly disclosed. About 500 – 1,000 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 Corporate Counsel 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. Upon the request from Clients to complete the Rate Cards for most large Law Firms, we estimated some rates for various Associate Class Years, these are marked with “E” for estimate. 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.

The author takes no responsibility for the information obtained from public or private sources in compiling this report or for the errors and omissions of its research staff. This report is for internal purposes only. Any other use by the purchaser of this report, for example use in any Court or Mediation or in the Media, is prohibited except with the prior written consent of the author.
