In recent years, litigation costs have been spiraling upward at a blistering rate.  Since the 2008 financial crisis, billing rates at top law firms have increased 3-4% per year, greatly outpacing the rate of inflation in the broader U.S. economy.  In 2015, law firm revenue increased 4%, despite a demand increase of just 0.5%.  The average rate for top partners now sits at $875/hr, over 25% higher than it was just 5 years ago.[1]
