$JCP Docket 1418 shows us Kirkland & Ellis billed JCP $9M for 45 days work. They scrub this very thoroughly, bravo. Simon and Brookfield only showed up once in all 471 pages. Can't even find a trace of Sycamore nor Amazon. I learned that I am in the wrong industry. Should have been a f**king lawyer. Their rate is insanely high. As much as Suss seems to be the main lawyer representing JCP, seven other people earn more than him in that 45 days. Suss earned a whopping total of $233K for example, John Goldman of Real Estate earned $415K. I found that Partner in general make $1,350/hr, whereas Associate make $780/hr. Associate is responsible for 65% of the hours being billed, Partner only account for 27%. A total of 171 professionals worked on the case, 47 of them came from Real Estate department, only 18 came from Restructuring. The 47 Real Estate people were compensated with $2.7M, and those 18 Restructuring people with $2.4M. Feel free to expand on my work: drive.google.com/file/d/1ye...
