The "Class Action Attorney Hourly Rate Report 2017" analyzes the hourly rates and fees of Attorneys (Senior Partner, Partner, Counsel, Senior Associates and Associates) at over 300 law firms specializing in this practice and the companies that pay them. The report has 5 Sections:

1. Rates by Law Firm Revenue Group (AMLAW 10, 50, 100, 101-200 and non-AMLAW Firms)
2. Rates by Individual Law Firm, Practice Areas and Cities
3. Rates by Industry
4. Relative Rate Ranking by Firm (Highest to Lowest)

Class Action matters are usually long in duration and expensive in terms of legal fees billed by both Plaintiff and Defense Counsel. The cases are also very complex and involve multiple issues of law which is why the Report details the various Practice Areas involved in Class Action cases.

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 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 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 2012 – 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 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. For the Relative Rate Rankings in Section 2, we took the average of all timekeeper positions in 2015 and 2017. For the relative Deal Rankings, we took the total values of the deal, when present.
