Fees for Research on Federal Law




Federal Statutes

To begin to develop a quote for research on Federal statutes we must know the goal of the research. There are two common ways to approach Federal Statutory research.

1. By focusing research on the pertinent history of the Congressional Bill enacted as a Public Law, we will provide a broad overview of the Congressional enactment. The scope of this sort of research is predictable in advance, so quoting a fee is fairly simple. The disadvantage of this approach is a broad overview will not typically provide much detail about specific parts of the enactment.
2. For most litigation generated research it is more productive to focus on particular language or concepts in a particular code section. Focusing on particular language produces a much more focused, and usually more useful result. However, when focusing on particular language the scope of the research is often more difficult to predict in advance, as the language or concepts may have developed in a number of different bills, often dating back into prior sessions of Congress.

Our quotes for Federal Statutory focus on how many enacted Public Laws we will be researching, and will typically fall within the following ranges -

4 weeks turnaround - $300 to $600, per public law
2 weeks turnaround - $350 to $700, per public law
1 week - turnaround - $400 to $800, per public law
3 working day turnaround - $500 to $1000, per public law


Typically focusing on the public law, as discussed in 1 above, will produce a quote at the bottom of the range, while focusing on specific language, as discussed in 2 above, produces a less fixed quote within the overall range.
