Could someone tell me what a typical hourly rate is for a patent agent as a solo practitioner and as part of a medium sized firm?

$50/hour
 
Of course that's just a rough estimate of the median.  There is a great deal of variability depending on experience, specialty, location, job responsibilities, academic credentials, fringe benefits and so forth.

guest -
 
$150/hour X 50 hours/week X 48 weeks/year =
$360,000/year
 
Which medium sized firm is paying $360,000 per year to a patent agent?  And why would they when they can hire agents for one-half or one-third of that?

Let me clarify - the firm charges the client $150 per hour for my services.  I do not get paid by the firm $150 per hour for my services.
