The "Staff Attorney Hourly Rate Report 2017" details the hourly rates of Staff Attorneys in all practice areas at all sizes of law firms globally.  The report has 4 Sections: 1) Rates by Firm Revenue Group (AMLAW 10, 50, 100, 101-200 and non-AMLAW Firms) 2) Rates by Individual Firm, Practice Areas and Cities 3) Overall Rates by Practice Areas 4) Overall Rates by City.

Staff Attorneys - non-Equity and non-Partner track Attorneys - have increased over the past 5 years and will continue to do so in 2017 although at a much slower pace. Staff Attorneys perform much of the same work as Associates and Counsel but typically work less hours and can be assigned to more support and administrative roles as opposed to high-stakes litigation or deal engagements. Staff Attorneys typically command a relatively high salary.

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 users – Law Firms and Corporate Counsel - of the Attorney Hourly Rates 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 no rates appear for a given field (Year or Position), an algorithm is used to estimate a rate or rates. The author considers Senior Staff Attorneys to be have 15+ years of experience (Law School Graduation Year of 2002 or sooner), Junior Staff Attorneys to have 6 – 14 years of experience (Grad Years between 2003 and 2011) and Staff Attorneys to have 5 years or less years experience (Grad Years of 2012 and sooner). Of course, those experience levels may vary by Firm but seem to work for both Large Law Firms and Middle-Market ones.
