If you think you deserve statistical credit, state your claim. 

A lot of lawyers worry if they stake a claim for credit, they may antagonize other partners and not seem like they are team players.  However, when the compensation committee has to make its annual points determination, it largely has to work from statistical data otherwise the process would be too subjective.
