Who knew that old creditors get paid after lawyers? According to law professor Lynn LoPucki who spoke to the Daily News about corporate bankruptcies, "The lawyers and all the other professionals who work on the case get paid first. The system deliberately makes the old creditors wait - sometimes for two or three years - while payday for the new creditors comes once a month." So while the now-bankrupt Lehman Brothers is selling off assets like their corporate jet for almost $25 million, LoPucki tells the News that legal and professional fees may be as high as $1.4 billion, "with Weil Gotshal & Manges, lawyers for the debtor, snaring about $209 million, and Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy, counsel to the creditors, getting some $58 million." Lawyers, FTW?
