Wilmer's Billing Snapshot

  • The National Law Journal

A recent article in The National Law Journal highlighted patent litigation billing rates in the legal industry. The article discusses fee discrepancies and considers the value of high-quality work in setting legal fees.

Michael Ray highlights the trend of law firms offering discounts to clients. “In-house corporate attorneys have an easier time justifying the cost of outside counsel when a discount is tacked on,” he says. However, he maintains a firm stance on Sterne Kessler’s billing policies. “We don't play the crank your rates up and slash them with discounts….We have a single billing rate and we strive to keep the rate."
