Client Spotlight: General Motors Bankruptcy Case

December 23, 2010

In December 2009, Brady Williamson, a member of Godfrey & Kahn's Business Finance and Restructuring Practice Group, was appointed as the fee examiner in the General Motors (GM) bankruptcy case in New York City. Godfrey & Kahn, as his legal counsel with significant contributions from Katherine Stadler, Carla Andres, Eric Wilson and Monica Santa Maria, are analyzing the complex and extensive fee requests from GM's law firm and other firms retained in one of the nation's largest bankruptcy cases ever.

It is a noteworthy assignment for Godfrey & Kahn, which is reviewing close to $100 million in legal fees that other firms are seeking for their work with GM.

Members of the Godfrey & Kahn team are reviewing invoices, documentation for fees and expenses, attending meetings, appearing at hearings in New York and preparing reports for the judge in an effort to make sure everything complies with bankruptcy laws and guidelines set by the New York Southern District bankruptcy court and the U.S. Trustee.

The GM case is expected to conclude next year.
