Developed in 2000, the BRASS plus provides participants with comprehensive benchmarking information on billing rates by geography, practice group, and a combination of both.
To maximize the value provided of the benchmarking information within our Surveys, last year we redesigned the Report offerings to include targeted metrics for the Firm Managers responsible for interpreting and utilizing the results.
Each of the three distinct Report types include summary charts highlighting select metrics prior to and after the downturn in the economy, each designed to visually present the firm's historical position relative to its peers.
The BRASSplus is released on a biannual basis; the Initial and the Mid-Year Release. Participation is now underway for the Mid-Year Release of the 2014 BRASSplus.
How to participate in the BRASS plus
Data disclaimer & confidentiality
Timing: Submissions for participation in the Mid-Year Release of the BRASSplus are due on September 19, 2014.
Fees: The cost for receiving Reports from the 2014 Mid-Year BRASSplus includes a base participation fee plus incremental fees for additional Reports or comparison groups ordered. For those firms that participated in the Initial Release of the BRASSplus, the base participation fee is $925. All other BRASSplus participants will receive a base participation fee of $1,850 that includes three comparison groups in any Reporting style for your individual offices or practice groups. A firm does not need to be a member of a comparison group to order it and see their values presented and ranked against the group.
Additional comparison groups will be billed separately and discounts are provided for firms that participated in the Initial Release of the BRASS plus and for those that order more than 10 additional comparison groups.
