The "2018 Intellectual Property Litigation Hourly Rate Report" report has been added to's offering.

The report has 6 Sections: 1) Overall Rates by Firm Revenue Groups 2) Overall Rates by Individual Firms 3) Practice Area (Copyright, Patent and Trademark) Rates by Individual Firms 4) Companies Represented and Overall Rates Billed by Their Outside Counsel.

IP matters, especially Patent litigation, representing two-thirds of all IP litigation, continue to grow annually and will continue to do so in 2018 by an estimated 5% over 2017 matters. Rates will also increase overall but with some discounting (10% or more).

In Sections 5 and 6, Engagement Summaries by Client and Law Firm, respectively, those averages are Blended (Total Fees divided by Total Hours for all Timekeepers).

The publisher considers Senior Partners to be ones with 25+ years of experience from law scool graduation, 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.
