Second Circuit: $350/Hour Sufficient Fee For Plaintiffs’ Counsel in FLSA Cases

Jackson Lewis P.C. • September 10, 2015
One common impediment to resolution of FLSA claims is the amount of attorneys’ fees sought by the claimant’s attorney. One important factor in assessing an appropriate fee is the rate likely to be awarded by the Court should Plaintiff prevail in that jurisdiction.
