   3. Groups based on the profitability of the firm - inclusion in the groups is based on Profits per Equity Partner, as submitted to the American Lawyer in the most recent publication;

   1. Groups based on geographic location - delineated by size of firm;

   3. Groups based on the profitability of the firm - inclusion in the groups is based on Profits per Equity Partner, as submitted to the American Lawyer in the most recent publication;

Custom 'Peer Firm' Comparisons - Section 1 and Section 2 Participants

 Custom 'Peer Firm' Comparisons
 In addition to our standard comparison group offerings, participants can choose to create custom comparison groups for their firm or individual offices, provided the criterion for participation
 in the group adheres to all current antitrust laws. Many firms submit a list of their peers and request comparison group(s) comprised of the Survey participants from their peer list of firms.

 Custom comparison groups are subject to a $100 custom group surcharge.

Understanding the PwC Comparison Groups' Webcast

 To assist Survey participants with understanding the wide-range of Survey Reports available, PwC will be conducting a webcast to discuss ordering the most relevant
 comparison groups to fit the needs of the firm.

 An invitation will be sent to all law firms to confirm the exact date and time to join one of the two webcasts entitled 'Understanding the Comparison Groups'.


Participation Fees and Invoicing

 Participation Fees

 2010 CAIS
 Participants in the 2010 CAIS will receive a base participation fee of $500 for one comparison group from each participating Section of the Survey. One 'free' comparison group is included
 for each one purchased. All additional comparison groups will be billed at $250 each.

 Firms that participate in both Sections of the Survey will be eligible for a discounted rate of $750 for one comparison group from each Section.

 All Custom Reports are subject to a $100 custom group surcharge each.

 Invoicing
 The Law Firm Survey Group will issue an invoice to all participants. We ask that Survey participants do not prepay their participation fees, as applicable sales tax may be added.

How to Submit Your Firm's Comparison Group Selections

 Please review the list of this year's anticipated Comparison Groups in the pages that follow to determine the appropriate groups for your firm. Participants can choose from a wide range of
 standard Comparison Groups (see Types of Comparison Groups Available on page 2). Your firm and/or office does not need to be a member of the group to select it and see your values
 presented and ranked against the group.

 In addition to the standard Comparison Group offerings, participants can choose to create Custom Comparison Groups based on a list of their peers, provided the criterion for participation in
 the group adheres to all current antitrust laws. If your firm would like to 'customize' a group, please indicate that your report is 'custom' and clearly document the participation criterion
 (or list of peer firms) for inclusion in the Comparison Group.

 Participants may order Comparison Groups by one of the following three methods:

        ►     List your Comparison Group choices in a note accompanying your data form submission, including any Custom Comparison Groups (see above).

        ►     Review the pages within the Comparison Group Listing and indicate your selections below for both Section 1 and Section 2. Then attach this document to an email, and send it
              to the Survey Staff at pwc.law.firm.survey@us.pwc.com.
