Miller, the chapter 7 trustee (the “Trustee”) of the bankruptcy estate (the “Estate”) of Girardi Keese (the "Debtor"), has filed an 22 Application to Employ Donlin, Recano & Company, Inc., as Consultant and Claims Noticing Agent (the "Application"). The Trustee is requesting that the Court grant the 23 Application without a hearing as provided for in LBR 9013-1(o), unless a party in interest files and serves a written opposition to the Application and requests a hearing. The 24 Application is summarized as follows: 25 1. The Trustee is seeking to employ Donlin, Recano & Company, Inc. ("DRC")to provide consulting services and noticing and claims management for the Debtor's 26 Estate. DRC is a bankruptcy administrator that specializes in services that include noticing, claims processing, and other services critical to the effective administration of 27 the Estate. The Debtor did not file schedules and the Trustee has been working to gather the information necessary to prepare them. It is apparent from a review of the Debtor's 28 books and records that the number of creditors will be considerable (in the thousands)

The Trustee and DRC have executed (1) the Standard Claims Administration and Noticing Agreement (the "Standard Claims 6 Agreement") to assume responsibility for, among other things, serving as the Trustee’snoticing agent to mail certain notices to the Estate's creditors and parties-in-interest and7 (2) the Consulting Services Agreement (the "Consulting Agreement") to provideconsulting services which may include, but may not be limited to, preparing or8 collaborating in the preparation of schedules and statement of financial affairs, devisingand implementing a plan to maintain the confidentiality of certain information, and9 otherwise assisting the Trustee in the administration of the Estate. The Standard ClaimsAgreement and the Consulting Agreement and are sometimes collectively referred to as10 the “Engagement Agreements." P 11 3.

1 2 I. INTRODUCTION 3 The Trustee is seeking to employ Donlin, Recano & Company, Inc. ("DRC") to4 provide consulting services and noticing and claims management for the Debtor's Estate. 5 DRC is a bankruptcy administrator that specializes in services that include noticing, claims 6 processing, and other services critical to the effective administration of the Estate. The 7 Debtor did not file schedules and the Trustee has been working to gather the information 8 necessary to prepare them. It is apparent from a review of the Debtor's books and records 9 that the number of creditors will be considerable and that much of their information must 10 remain confidential. The Trustee believes that the employment of DRC will benefit the P L 2 11 Estate, because DRC's experience in large cases and cases requiring special handling of MILEY WANG-EKVALL, L 3200 Park Center Drive, Suite 250 Costa Mesa, California 92626 Tel 714 445-1000 • Fax 714 445-100 1111123456 cDoIIof.R nthCfied c ecaBnhnAta iaalCllles KnionGg fceoRosrOlm lfaaUabctNoiionrDangt etwh wiell i tTphrr utohsmete oTetre.u s etfefiec iteon dt envoetliocipn gs traantedg cielasi mons hporwoc teos aspinpgro aancdh ssoinmcee 17 A. The Debtor's Bankruptcy Case S 18 The Debtor was a plaintiff's law firm based in Los Angeles, California.

Keese, John Abassian, Erika Saldana, Virginia Antonio, and 21 Kimberly Archie (collectively, the "Petitioning Creditors") filed an involuntary chapter 7 22 bankruptcy petition against the Debtor. On December 24, 2020, the Petitioning Creditors 23 filed a Motion for Appointment of Interim Trustee Pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 303(g) [Docket 24 No. 12]. The Court entered an order granting the motion on January 5, 2021 [Docket No. 25 45]. On January 6, 2021, the Trustee was appointed as the interim trustee [Docket No. 26 50]. 27 28

On January 13, 6 2021, the Clerk of Court entered an order for relief against the Debtor [Docket No. 69], and 7 the Trustee was appointed and accepted her appointment in the Debtor's case [Docket No. 8 71]. 9 B.

If there is a discrepancy between the official 5 claims registry maintained by DRC and the Court’s claims register, then the claims registry 6 maintained by the Court will be deemed the accurate record. The Clerk’s Office shall have 7 unlimited free access to DRC’s claims registry. DRC will not be responsible for recording 8 the transfers of claims and providing notices of such transfers as required by Bankruptcy 9 Rule 3001(e). The Clerk’s Office shall be responsible for collecting the fee, processing and 10 recording all transfer of claims.

A true and correct copy of the Consulting Agreement 24 is attached hereto as Exhibit "2." 25 B. The Qualifications of DRC 26 DRC is well-qualified and experienced in rendering the services described in this27 Application and in the Engagement Agreements. DRC specializes in providing 28

EXHIBIT "1"

STANDARD CLAIMS ADMINISTRATION AND NOTICING AGREEMENT TERMS AND CONDITIONS Donlin, Recano & Company, Inc. (hereinafter called “DRC”) agrees to provide Elissa D. Miller, solely in her capacity as the chapter 7 trustee of the Girardi Keese bankruptcy estate (hereinafter called the “Client”), and Client agrees to purchase Services (as defined below) upon the terms and conditions and other provisions stated herein. Client agrees and understands that none of the services constitute legal advice. 1. SERVICES: DRC agrees to provide the Client with consulting services regarding distributions, noticing and claims management and reconciliation, and any other services agreed upon by the parties or otherwise required by applicable law, government regulations, or court rules or orders. A more detailed description of the types of services offered by DRC, as well as the fees charged for such services, is annexed hereto as Schedule A. 2. CHARGES: All charges shall be based upon the time and materials incurred by DRC, billed at the DRC then prevailing standard rate unless another rate schedule is specifically and mutually agreed upon herein. DRC reserves its rights to adjust its standard rates in January of each year to reflect changes in the business and economic environment. In the event that rates are based other than on time and materials, and such other basis for rates is set forth herein, the Client agrees to pay, in addition to those rates, for all charges, incurred by DRC as a result of Client error or omission as determined by DRC. Such charges shall include but shall not be limited to re-runs and any additional clerical work, phone calls, travel expenses, or any other disbursements. When possible, DRC will notify Client in advance of any additional charges. Checks are accepted subject to collection and the date of collection shall be deemed the date of payment. Any check received from Client may be applied by DRC against any obligation owing by Client to DRC, and an acceptance by DRC of any partial payment shall not constitute a waiver of DRC's right to pursue the collection of any remaining balance. DRC requires advance deposits for all noticing, newspaper publishing or other significant expenditures as defined by DRC. In addition, Client shall reimburse DRC for all actual out-of-pocket expenses reasonably incurred by DRC. The out-of-pocket expenses may include, but are not limited to, postage, delivery services, travel, meals and other similar costs and expenses. In addition to all charges for services and materials hereunder, Client shall pay to DRC all taxes, however designated, levied or based that are applicable to this Agreement or are measured directly by payments made under this Agreement and are required to be collected by DRC or paid by DRC to taxing authorities. This provision, includes but is not limited to, sales, use and excise taxes, but does not include personal property taxes or taxes based on net income. 2869028.5 6/7/20215/27/2021 Page 1 of 7

3. TRANSPORTATION OF DATA: Data submitted by the Client to DRC for processing shall be transported at the Client's risk and expense to and from the DRC office. In the event the Client fails to deliver the input data to DRC at the time scheduled, the Client agrees that DRC may extend, as necessary, the time for the completion of processing of such data. Client further agrees that the time for the completion or processing of such data may be extended because of the following holidays in addition to any Bank holidays recognized in the city in which DRC is located: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. In any event, DRC does not warrant or represent that shipment or availability dates will be met, but will use its best efforts to do so. If DRC is required to stay open to perform required tasks on such days, an additional mutually agreed upon cost may be required by DRC. 4. INVOICES: Provided that the Girardi Keese bankruptcy estate has unencumbered funds or obtains Bankruptcy Court authority to use cash collateral to pay for services rendered by DRC as set forth herein, Client shall pay the charges set forth in Schedule A, attached hereto. DRC shall invoice the Client monthly for all services rendered during the preceding month. Charges for a partial month's service shall be prorated based on a thirty (30) day month. Subject to the conditions set forth above in the first sentence of this section 4 and elsewhere in this Agreement, failure to pay any fees, costs or other amounts to DRC shall be a breach of this Agreement (a “Failure to Pay”). DRC shall also have the right, at its option, to terminate this Agreement with Bankruptcy Court approval upon a Failure to Pay (a “Non-Payment Breach”). If the invoice amount is disputed, notice shall be given to DRC within ten (10) days of receipt of the invoice by the Client. The undisputed portion of the invoice will remain due and payable. Notwithstanding anything contained in this agreement to the contrary, a Failure to Pay shall under no circumstances be construed as an agreement by DRC to reduce or waive DRC’s fees and expenses. The Client shall not agree or otherwise consent to a unilateral reduction or waiver of DRC fees and expenses without the explicit written consent of DRC and any such agreement or consent to such reduction or waiver by the Client without DRC’s explicit written consent shall be deemed null and void and constitute a breach of this Agreement (a “Material Breach”). Notwithstanding anything contained in this agreement to the contrary, upon the occurrence of a Material Breach, DRC shall have the right, at its option, to terminate this agreement upon five (5) business days’ notice to the Client and Bankruptcy Court approval. 5. STORAGE: Client shall assume the risks and DRC shall not be responsible for any damages, liability or expenses incurred in connection with any delay in delivery of or damage to cards, disks, magnetic tapes or any input data furnished by Client unless DRC has agreed in writing to assume such responsibility. Forms storage at DRC beyond a normal 90-day supply will be billed at standard warehousing rates established by DRC. 6. E-MAIL COMMUNICATIONS: DRC and the Client and its agents acknowledge that they may wish to communicate electronically with each other at a business e-mail 2869028.5 6/7/20215/27/2021 Page 2 of 7

29

address. However, the electronic transmission of information cannot be guaranteed to be secure or error free and such information could be intercepted, corrupted, lost, destroyed, arrive late or incomplete or otherwise be adversely affected or unsafe to use. Accordingly, each party agrees to use commercially reasonable procedures to check for the then most commonly known viruses and to check the integrity of data before sending information to the other electronically, but each party recognizes that such procedures cannot be a guarantee that transmissions will be virus-free. It remains the responsibility of the party receiving an electronic communication from the other to carry out a virus check on any attachments before launching any documents, whether received on disk or otherwise. 7. SUPPLIES: All supplies shall be furnished at Client's expense. 8. TERM: This Agreement shall be effective upon entry of a Bankruptcy Court order approving this Agreement or such earlier date as provided in the order, and shall remain in force until terminated by either party upon thirty days’ written notice to the other party or by DRC after Bankruptcy Court approval after upon occurrence of a Non-Payment Breach or a Material Breach, as defined in section 4 above. The payment obligation set forth in section 4 shall survive termination of this Agreement. In the event this Agreement is terminated, DRC shall coordinate with the Client and, to the extent applicable, the Office of the Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court, for an orderly transfer of record keeping functions and shall provide all necessary staff, services and assistance required for such orderly transfer. Client agrees to pay for such services in accordance with DRC’s then existing fees for such services. 9. TERMS OF AGREEMENT: No waiver, discharge, or modification of the terms of this Agreement shall bind DRC unless in writing and signed by an authorized representative of DRC. 10. CONFIDENTIALITY: Each of DRC and the Client, on behalf of themselves and their respective employees, agents, professionals and representatives, agrees to keep confidential all non-public records, systems, procedures, software and other information received from the other party in connection with the services provided under this Agreement; provided, however, that if either party reasonably believes that it is required to produce any such information by order of any governmental agency or other regulatory body, it may, upon not less than five (5) business days’ written notice to the other party, release the required information. 11. OWNERSHIP OF PROGRAMS: Unless otherwise agreed in writing, all programs developed by DRC in connection with any services to be performed under this Agreement shall remain the sole property of DRC. All programs and/or systems documentation in the possession of DRC which DRC has agreed in writing to return to the Client, prepared for the Client by DRC, shall be returned to the Client upon demand providing all charges for such programming and/or systems documentation have been paid in full. 2869028.5 6/7/20215/27/2021 Page 3 of 7

12. SYSTEMS IMPROVEMENTS: DRC’s policy is to provide continuous improvements in the quality of service to its clients. DRC, therefore, reserves the right to make changes in operating procedures, operating systems, programming languages, application programs, time period of accessibility, equipment, and the DRC data center serving the Client, so long as any such changes do not materially interfere with ongoing services provided to the Client in connection with the Client’s case. 13. UNUSUAL MEASURES: Where the Client requires measures that are unusual and beyond the normal business practice and hours of DRC such as, but not limited to, CPA Audit, Errors and Omissions Insurance, and/or Off-Premises Storage of Data, the cost of such measures, if provided by DRC, shall be charged to the Client. Said charges may be required in advance if DRC deems it appropriate. 14. FORCE MAJEURE. Whenever performance by DRC of any of its obligations hereunder is substantially prevented by reason of any act of God, strike, lock out or other industrial or transportational disturbance, fire, lack of materials, law, regulation or ordinance, war or war conditions, or by reasons of any other matter beyond DRC’s reasonable control, then such performance shall be excused and this Agreement shall be deemed suspended during the continuation of such prevention and for a reasonable time thereafter. 15. NOTICE. Any notice or other communication required or permitted hereunder shall be in writing and shall be delivered personally, or sent by registered mail, postage prepaid, or overnight courier. Any such notice shall be deemed given when so delivered personally, or, if mailed, five days after the date of deposit in the United States mail, or, if sent by overnight courier, one business day after delivery to such courier, as follows: If to DRC, to: Donlin, Recano & Company, Inc., 6201 15th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11219 Attention: Nellwyn Voorhies, Esq. If to the Client, to: Sulmeyer Kupetz, 333 South Grand Avenue, Suite 3400, Los Angeles, CA 90071, Attention: Elissa D. Miller, Esq. 16. GOVERNING LAW. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York (without reference to its conflict of laws provisions). Venue shall be in the United States Bankruptcy Court, Central District of California, Los Angeles Division, and such Bankruptcy Court shall retain jurisdiction over all matters regarding this Agreement. 17. SEVERABILITY. All clauses and covenants contained in this Agreement are 2869028.5 6/7/20215/27/2021 Page 4 of 7

31

severable and in the event any of them are held to be invalid by any court, such clause or covenant shall be valid and enforced to the maximum extent as to which it may be valid and enforceable, and this Agreement will be interpreted as if such invalid clauses or covenants were not contained herein. 18. ASSIGNMENT. This Agreement and the rights and obligations of DRC and the Client hereunder shall bind and inure to the benefit of any successors or assigns thereto. 19. GENERAL: The term "this Agreement" as used herein includes any future written amendments, modifications, supplements or schedules duly executed by Client and DRC. This Agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof.

Miller, solely in her capacity as the chapter 7 trustee of the Girardi Keese bankruptcy estate (hereinafter called the “Client”), and Client agrees to purchase services upon the terms and conditions and in accordance with “Schedule A”, attached hereto, and other provisions stated herein. Client agrees and understands that none of the services constitute legal advice. 1. CHARGES: All charges shall be based upon the time and materials incurred by DRC, billed at theDRC then prevailing standard rate unless another rate schedule is specifically and mutually agreedupon herein. DRC reserves its rights to adjust its standard rates in January of each year to reflectchanges in the business and economic environment. In the event that rates are based other than ontime and materials, and such other basis for rates is set forth herein, the Client agrees to pay, inaddition to those rates, for all charges, incurred by DRC as a result of Client error or omission asdetermined by DRC. Such charges shall include but shall not be limited to re-runs and any additionalclerical work, phone calls, travel expenses, or any other disbursements. When possible, DRC willnotify Client in advance of any additional charges. Checks are accepted subject to collection and thedate of collection shall be deemed the date of payment. Any check received from Client may beapplied by DRC against any obligation owing by Client to DRC, and an acceptance by DRC of any partialpayment shall not constitute a waiver of DRC's right to pursue the collection of any remaining balance. DRC requires advance deposits for all noticing, newspaper publishing or other significant expendituresas defined by DRC. In addition, Client shall reimburse DRC for all actual out-of-pocket expensesreasonably incurred by DRC. The out-of-pocket expenses may include, but are not limited to, postage,delivery services, travel, meals and other similar costs and expenses. In addition to all charges forservices and materials hereunder, Client shall pay to DRC all taxes, however designated, levied orbased that are applicable to this Agreement or are measured directly by payments made under thisAgreement and are required to be collected by DRC or paid by DRC to taxing authorities. Thisprovision, includes but is not limited to, sales, use and excise taxes, but does not include personalproperty taxes or taxes based on net income 2. TRANSPORTATION OF DATA: Data submitted by the Client to DRC for processing shall betransported at the Client's risk and expense to and from the DRC office. In the event the Client fails todeliver the input data to DRC at the time scheduled, the Client agrees that DRC may extend, asnecessary, the time for the completion of processing of such data. Client further agrees that the timefor the completion or processing of such data may be extended because of the following holidays inaddition to any Bank holidays recognized in the city in which DRC is located: New Year's Day, MemorialDay, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. In any event, DRC does notwarrant or represent that shipment or availability dates will be met but will use its best efforts to doso. If DRC is required to stay open to perform required tasks on such days, an additional mutuallyagreed upon cost may be required by DRC. 3.INVOICES: Provided that the Girardi Keese bankruptcy estate has unencumbered funds or obtainsBankruptcy Court authority to use cash collateral to pay for services rendered by DRC as set forth herein2869030.5 6/7/2021 Page 1 of 6

36

and further provided that DRC obtains Bankruptcy Court approval for payment of its invoices, Client shall pay the charges set forth in Schedule A, attached hereto. DRC shall invoice the Client monthly for all services rendered during the preceding month. Charges for a partial month's service shall be prorated based on a thirty (30) day month. Subject to the conditions set forth above in the first sentence of this section 3 and elsewhere in this Agreement, failure to pay any fees, costs or other amounts to DRC shall be a breach of this Agreement (a “Failure to Pay”). Subject to the conditions set forth above in the first sentence of this section 3 and elsewhere in this Agreement, DRC shall have the right, at its option, to terminate this Agreement for non-payment of invoices after Bankruptcy Court approval of the invoices (a “Non-Payment Breach”). Notwithstanding anything contained in this agreement to the contrary, a Failure to Pay shall under no circumstances be construed as an agreement by DRC to reduce or waive DRC’s fees and expenses. The Client shall not agree or otherwise consent to a unilateral reduction or waiver of DRC fees and expenses without the explicit written consent of DRC and any such agreement or consent to such reduction or waiver by the Client without DRC’s explicit written consent shall be deemed null and void and constitute a breach of this Agreement (a “Material Breach”). Notwithstanding anything contained in this agreement to the contrary, upon the occurrence of a Material Breach, DRC shall have the right, at its option, to terminate this Agreement upon five (5) business days’ notice to the Client. 4. STORAGE: Client shall assume the risks and DRC shall not be responsible for any damages, liability or expenses incurred in connection with any delay in delivery of or damage to cards, disks, magnetic tapes or any input data furnished by Client unless DRC has agreed in writing to assume such responsibility. Forms storage at DRC beyond a normal 90-day supply will be billed at standard warehousing rates established by DRC. 5. E-MAIL COMMUNICATIONS: DRC and the Client and its agents acknowledge that they may wish to communicate electronically with each other at a business e-mail address. However, the electronic transmission of information cannot be guaranteed to be secure or error free and such information could be intercepted, corrupted, lost, destroyed, arrive late or incomplete or otherwise be adversely affected or unsafe to use. Accordingly, each party agrees to use commercially reasonable procedures to check for the then most commonly known viruses and to check the integrity of data before sending information to the other electronically, but each party recognizes that such procedures cannot be a guarantee that transmissions will be virus-free. It remains the responsibility of the party receiving an electronic communication from the other to carry out a virus check on any attachments before launching any documents, whether received on disk or otherwise. 6. SUPPLIES: All supplies shall be furnished at Client's expense. 7. TERM: This Agreement shall be effective upon entry of a Bankruptcy Court order approving this Agreement or such earlier date as provided in the order, and shall remain in force until terminated by either party upon thirty days’ written notice to the other party or by DRC upon occurrence of a Non-Payment Breach or a Material Breach, as defined in section 3 above. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Agreement will remain in effect until an order of the Bankruptcy Court is entered discharging DRC from service and responsibility under this Agreement. The payment obligation set forth in section 3 shall survive termination of this Agreement. In the event this Agreement is terminated, DRC shall coordinate with the Client and, to the extent applicable, the Office of the Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court, 2869030.5 6/7/2021 Page 2 of 6

37

for an orderly transfer of record keeping functions and shall provide all necessary staff, services and assistance required for such orderly transfer. Client agrees to pay for such services in accordance with DRC’s then existing fees for such services. If termination of this Agreement occurs following entry of an order by the Bankruptcy Court approving DRC’s retention under 11 U.S.C. §§ 327 (a) and 328, then the Client shall immediately seek entry of an order (in form and substance reasonably acceptable to DRC) that discharges DRC from service and responsibility under this Agreement. 8. TERMS OF AGREEMENT: The terms of this Agreement prevail over any and all terms contained in Client's purchase order or authorization and no waiver, discharge, or modification of the terms of this Agreement shall bind DRC unless in writing and signed by an authorized representative of DRC. 9. CONFIDENTIALITY: Each of DRC and the Client, on behalf of themselves and their respective employees, agents, professionals and representatives, agrees to keep confidential all non-public records, systems, procedures, software and other information received from the other party in connection with the services provided under this Agreement; provided, however, that if either party reasonably believes that it is required to produce any such information by order of any governmental agency or other regulatory body, it may, upon not less than five (5) business days’ written notice to the other party, release the required information. 10. OWNERSHIP OF PROGRAMS: Unless otherwise agreed in writing, all programs developed by DRC in connection with any services to be performed under this Agreement shall remain the sole property of DRC. All programs and/or systems documentation in the possession of DRC which DRC has agreed in writing to return to the Client, prepared for the Client by DRC, shall be returned to the Client upon demand providing all charges for such programming and/or systems documentation have been paid in full. 11. SYSTEMS IMPROVEMENTS: DRC’s policy is to provide continuous improvements in the quality of service to its clients. DRC, therefore, reserves the right to make changes in operating procedures, operating systems, programming languages, application programs, time period of accessibility, equipment, and the DRC data center serving the Client, so long as any such changes do not materially interfere with ongoing services provided to the Client in connection with the case. 12. UNUSUAL MEASURES: Where the Client requires measures that are unusual and beyond the normal business practice and hours of DRC such as, but not limited to, CPA Audit, Errors and Omissions Insurance, and/or Off-Premises Storage of Data, the cost of such measures, if provided by DRC, shall be charged to the Client. Said charges may be required in advance if DRC deems it appropriate. 13. BANKRUPTCY COURT APPROVAL AND JURISDICTION. This Agreement, the effectiveness thereof, and payment of any charges to DRC under this Agreement are subject to approval of the United States Bankruptcy Court, Central District of California, Los Angeles Division, in the pending chapter 7 bankruptcy case of Girardi Keese, case number 2:20-bk-21022-BR, and such Bankruptcy Court shall retain jurisdiction over all matters regarding this Agreement. 14.
