The firm's revenue-per-lawyer stands between $1 million to $1.25 million, said Graeme Bush, chairman of Zuckerman. Bush added that last year was the firm's most profitable. Hourly rates vary from the low $300s for some associates to just under $1,000 for some partners, he said.
While it's not uncommon for law firms to bring on former federal and state prosecutors, Zuckerman's hires have attracted some attention in New York.
"I can't think there are many firms that have three people with such an extraordinary breadth of experience in the New York legal community," said James McGuire, a Dechert partner and a former justice of the Appellate Division, First Department, referring to Jones, Cohen and Shechtman. "The new hires reflect the firm's confidence that they are going to be increasing their business in the New York market in both civil and criminal areas."
