How many billable hours do partners typically generate?

I know that each firm will be different depending on the choices made and structures adopted, but I would be really grateful for a quick straw poll of contributors thoughts on how many hours of chargeable time they generate per annum as a partner in practice.

We are looking to set targets for improvement in our partnership team of three individuals (18 staff). Last year our three partners generated 1193, 809 and 728 hours respectively. Looking at the year ahead we have ambitiously set the targets at 1050, 1220 and 1383 but I am fearful that these totals look too ambitious and would like to contrast against other firms if you are happy to share this information on this forum?

 

Many thanks for your input.
