{894.001-W0018299.}

7

REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES

22.

During the Monthly Application Period, LRC incurred certain reasonable

and necessary expenses in rendering legal services to the Committee as set forth in Exhibit C. Telecopying services completed in-house by LRC were charged at $1.00 per page for outgoing facsimiles only. LRC represents that its rate for duplication is $0.10 per page, consistent with the Local Rules and Guidelines. In order to more efficiently handle the voluminous copying of pleadings served and filed in this case, LRC on occasion retained third-party duplication service providers. LRC seeks reimbursement only for the actual expenses charged by such third-party service providers. Finally, LRC seeks reimbursement for computer assisted research, which is the actual cost of such charges. 23. LRC seeks reimbursement for its reasonable, necessary and actual

expenses incurred during the Monthly Application Period for the total amount of $2,543.74. LRC further seeks final approval of all expenses incurred during the Application Periods in the amount of $14,511.10. 24. LRC requests that the Court enter an order finally approving all fees and

expenses incurred by LRC during the Application Periods; to wit, fees totaling $76,707.50 and expenses totaling $14,511.10 (collectively, the "Allowed Fee and Expenses"). Through the date of this Application, LRC has received $47,633.40 in payment for its fees and $8,452.76 in payment for its expenses (as such may increase by virtue of interim payment prior to the hearing on this Application, the "Paid Amount"). Accordingly, LRC requests that this Court enter an order granting this Application and directing the prompt payment of all Allowed Fees and Expenses minus the Paid Amount to LRC.

{894.001-W0018299.)

LEGAL STANDARD

25.

Bankruptcy Code Section 330(a)(1) allows the payment of: (A) reasonable compensation for actual, necessary services rendered by the trustee, examiner, ombudsman, professional person, or attorney and by any paraprofessional person employed by any such person; and (B) reimbursement for actual, necessary expenses.

11 U.S.C. § 330(a)(1). Reasonableness of compensation is driven by the "market-driven approach" which considers the nature, extent and value of services provided by the professional and the cost of comparable services in non-bankruptcy contexts. See Zolfo Cooper & Co. v.
Sunbeam-Oster Co., 50 F.3d 253, 258 (3d Cir. 1995); In re Busy Beaver Building Ctr., Inc., 19

F.3d 833, 849 (3d Cir. 1994). Thus, the "baseline rule is for firms to receive their customary rates." Zolfo Cooper, 50 F.3d at 259. 26. In accordance with its practices in non-bankruptcy matters, LRC has

calculated its compensation requested in this Application by applying its standard hourly rates. LRC's calculation is based upon hourly rates that it believes to be well within the range of rates that are charged by comparable firms in similar bankruptcy cases. Accordingly, LRC's rates should be determined to be reasonable under section 330 of the Bankruptcy Code. 27. LRC's fees during the Application Periods are also reasonable under the prevailing legal standard and should be allowed. LRC's fees are not unusual, given the complexity and size of the Debtors' chapter 11 cases. Moreover, LRC's fees are commensurate with fees charged by and awarded to other attorneys of comparable experience and expertise in similar chapter 11 cases. Accordingly, LRC's fees are reasonable pursuant to Bankruptcy Code Section 330.

{894.001-W0018299.1

9

28.

Bankruptcy Code Section 330(a)(1)(B) permits reimbursement for actual,

necessary expenses. Accordingly, the expenses LRC incurred during the Application Periods are set forth in this Application and constitute only necessary expenses that were incurred for the benefit of the Debtors' estates. LRC should be reimbursed its actual and necessary legal expenses. 29. Except as permitted by Rule 2016 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy

Procedure, no agreement or understanding exists between LRC and/or any third person for the sharing or division of compensation. All of the services for which compensation is requested in this Application were rendered at the request of and solely on behalf of the Committee. 30. Pursuant to the standards set forth in sections 330 and 331 of the

Bankruptcy Code, LRC submits that the compensation requested is for actual and necessary services and expenses, and is reasonable, based upon the nature, extent and value of such services, the time spent thereon, and the costs of services in a comparable case under the Bankruptcy Code. 31. The time records attached to this Application constitute only a general

statement of the services rendered and time expended without description of the pressure and constraints under which LRC actually rendered these services. The considerable challenge of these cases have been attended to and managed by LRC at all levels, promptly, expertly, and often to the exclusion of other matters in LRC's office. LRC submits, therefore, that its fees and expenses were actually, necessary, reasonable and justified, and should be allowed in full.

{894.001-W0018299.}

No trustee or examiner has been appointed in these Chapter 11 cases.
