Law firms surveyed increased billing rates for both partners and associates by an average 4.3% this year, compared to an average hike last year of 7.7%.

White & Case said $1,260 number was “representative of only two potential billing scenarios for clients” and “[did] not take into account a number of key factors, including blended rates and rates negotiated with specific clients.”
