$950 per hour?

If you are a high stakes mediator (do you really describe yourself like that??) - well anyway, if you are operating in the rarefied atmosphere of the legal world your fees may, more or less, track attorney rates.

If so, this map may interest you as it is a survey of high-profile, complex bankruptcies showing a bountiful harvest of hourly rates across the US.

Why bankruptcy? Because attorney hourly rates are often required by the court so its a good (and rare) source of otherwise hard-to-get solid data.
