In brief: Most are 6-12 hours
Hard to be specific since recipients or donor organs may have features that make the procedure more or less difficult.

In brief: Variable
Most operations last about 6 hours, but depends of cause for liver transplant and immediate function of the transplanted liver. I have performed them in as short as 4.
5 hours and as long as 12 hours.
