Title: An Empirical Study of Associate Satisfaction, Law Firm Culture, and the Effects of Billable Hour Requirements: Part One
Author: Fortney, Susan Saab
Abstract: This article considers billing practices, the effects of hourly billing pressure, and firm culture as reflected in a survey of associates in Texas law firms. Part I of this article reports the empirical information from the survey. This information includes insight into the toll an increase in billable hour requirements has taken on legal practitioners and the consequent affect on the legal field. Part II discusses what the data means and how it might be used to improve the outlook for attracting and retaining good associates.
