Rates Reflect Specialty Nature Of Practice, We Would Conjecture.
We can report that the National Association of Legal Fee Analysis (NALFA) has conducted a survey of partner hourly rates in bankruptcy cases, the results of which were reported in a recent post on its News Blog.
NALFA examined dozens of court filings in bankruptcy cases over the past few years. The following results of its survey reflect the average of partner hourly rate ranges in major legal markets for the sampling of bankruptcy cases at issue:
2017: $878 - $1,005
2016: $807 - $921
2015: $783 - $886
We thank NALFA for these results in the bankruptcy area as far as newsworthy purposes.
