AMR Corp., American Airlines parent company, has been fighting a major bankruptcy case for about a year now.And no one loves that more than the lawyers.
The company is paying about $20 million a month to 34 law firms, consultants and advisers, according to the Tulsa World.
Just in case that number isn’t mindblowing enough, the company spent $77,676,873 in only four months on legal and consulting fees.
Those fees have retained some pretty big names.
Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP, Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP, Harris Finley & Bogle PC, and Yetter Coleman LLP are just four of the firms that have worked on the bankruptcy in the past year, according to Above The Law.
Of course, Dewey recently filed bankruptcy itself, so it’s likely that firm is no longer on the case.
