I don't know and I don't much care. Minimum billables are a poor indicator of how much work you will do. My group's hours are roughly comparable to US groups in the other City firms. I probably bill a bit more because I get "borrowed" by a British partner who does a lot of CIS work and he keeps very long hours. I love working with him, though, so I don't mind.

LittleRussianPrincess,

What led you to move from TN to London?

the only reason i ever wanted to go biglaw is the Boston Legal experience. To make the big bucks I'm becoming a talent agent.

About how many hours of work = 1 billable hour (roughly)?

It's not really that simple.  You can easily work 1 hour and bill 1 hour. You lose time during all the non-billable stuff that goes on during a given day.
