Retained Professionals (D.I. 132) (the “Interim Compensation Procedures Order”). In support of this Fee Application, Fallace respectfully represents as follows: JURISDICTION, VENUE, AND STATUTORY PREDICATE 1. The Court has jurisdiction to consider the Motion pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 157 and 1334(b), and the Amended Standing Order of Reference from the United States District Court for the District of Delaware dated as of February 29, 2012 (the “Amended Standing Order”). This is a core proceeding pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 157(b)(2)(A) and (B). Venue is proper in this Court pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 1408 and 1409. 2. The statutory and legal predicates for the relief sought herein are Sections 105(a), 330, 331, and 503(b)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code, Bankruptcy Rule 2016, and Local Rule 2016-2. BACKGROUND 3. On April 30, 2020 (the “Petition Date”), the Debtor commenced a voluntary case under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (the “Case”). 4. The Debtor was the owner of a state-of-the-art Southern Yellow Pine sawmill located in Suwannee County, Florida. 5. On July 1, 2021, this Court confirmed the Second Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan for Klausner Lumber One LLC Proposed by the Debtor and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors (the “Plan”), which was attached as Exhibit A to the Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law, and Order Confirming the Second Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan for Klausner Lumber One LLC [D.I. 1014] (the “Confirmation Order”). 6. The Effective Date, as defined in the Plan, occurred on July 26, 2021. Pursuant to the Notice of (I) Effective Date of Second Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan for Klausner Lumber One LLC and (II) Certain Claims Bar Dates [D.I. 1084] (the “Effective Date Notice”), all final

fee applications for professional fees must be filed and served no later than September 9, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. RELIEF REQUESTED 7. By this Fee Application, pursuant to Sections 330, 331, and 503(b)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code, Bankruptcy Rule 2016, and Local Rule 2016-2, Fallace seeks: (i) approval of compensation in the amount of $48,397.50 for reasonable and necessary professional services rendered to the Debtor during the Fee Period; and (ii) approval of actual and necessary expenses incurred during the Fee Period in the amount of $731.58. In accordance with Local Rule 2016-2(g), Fallace includes herein the Certification of Jesse Kabaservice in support of this Fee Application. FACTS RELEVANT TO THIS APPLICATION A. Procedural Background. 8. On June 5, 2020, the Debtor filed the Application of the Debtor for Order Authorizing Employment and Retention of Fallace & Larkin L.C. as Special Litigation and Real Estate Counsel, Effective as of the Petition Date [D.I. 128] (the “Retention Application”) seeking authority to retain and employ Fallace in this Case. On July 14, 2020, the Court entered the order approving the Retention Application [D.I. 204], thereby authorizing the employment of Fallace as Debtor’s Florida litigation and real estate counsel, effective as of April 30, 2020. B. Compensation Background. 9. Fallace has not previously submitted interim fee applications for compensation and reimbursement of expenses in this Case, as the costs of preparing such applications would not be commensurate with the small amount of Fallace’s bills (less than $50,000 for the lifetime of this case). Fallace seeks approval and payment of compensation for services provided during the Fee

7

Period in the amount of $48,397.50, and reimbursement for expenses incurred during the Fee Period in the amount of $731.58, for a total award of $49,129.08. The professional services performed by Fallace with regard to Debtor’s Florida litigation and Florida real estate matters were necessary and appropriate to the administration of this Case in aiding the Debtor to discharge its duties. 10. Specifically, Fallace was retained to assist in Florida litigation matters, relating to the WARN Act cases pending there, and relating to Florida real estate matters, as the Debtor’s other professionals had no Florida-specific real estate lawyers that could assist on matters unique to Florida law in the closing of the sale of the Debtor’s assets. 11. The services rendered were in the best interests of the Debtor, its estates, and creditors. 12. Fallace has not received payments or promises for payment for these same matters from any source other than the Debtor. There is no agreement between Fallace and any other person other than the members of Fallace for the sharing of compensation received for the services rendered in this Case. C. Itemization and Value of Services Rendered and Expenses Incurred. 13. Fallace maintains detailed daily time records in the ordinary course of its business. These time records are prepared contemporaneously with the rendition of services to the client. These time records describe the person performing the services, the date services are rendered, a detailed description of services, and the length of time spent delivering the services. These time records are kept in increments of tenths of an hour. These policies were followed in preparation of this Fee Application and its accompanying schedules and exhibits.

8

14. The information required by Local Rule 2016-2(c)(ii) is set forth in a schedule detailing the number of hours spent by each professional across all areas, multiplied by the applicable rate for each professional and in a separate schedule of the hours billed during the Fee Period by project billing code above. Fallace’s statements for services rendered during the Fee Period provide time keeper’s time entries, in chronological order, for each task performed within each project billing code. Fallace’s statements for the Fee Period are collectively Exhibit A. 15. Fallace’s professionals have expended a total of 154.60 hours in connection with this Case during the Fee Period totaling $48,397.50 in fees. Pursuant to this Fee Application, Fallace seeks reimbursement for such fees. 16. The time billed by the Fallace professionals for this matter relates to assisting the Debtor with numerous state and federal litigation matters, all of which were pending prior to the Petition Date. 17. Fallace submits that Exhibit A satisfies the requirements of Local Rule 2016-2(d) and its various subsections, and the activity descriptions included therein are sufficiently detailed to allow the Court to determine that all the time billed was actual, reasonable, and necessary. 18. Fallace seeks reimbursement for expenses in the amount of $731.58. In connection with the reimbursement of expenses, it is Fallace’s practice to charge its clients for expenses, other than fixed and routine overhead expenses, incurred in connection with representing its clients. Typically, the expenses charged to its clients include, among other things, postage, court fees, mail and express mail charges, special or hand delivery charges, photocopying charges, out-of-town travel expenses, transportation expenses, expenses for working meals, computerized research, and transcription costs. Fallace has charged the Debtor for these expenses at rates that are the same as those charged to its other clients, and there is no markup on any expenses, whatsoever. Fallace

9

charges its expenses to clients “at cost” and does not make profit on any such expenditure. All expenses listed on Exhibit A are reasonable, were incurred in the ordinary course of this Case and comply with the Local Rules of this Court. Fallace submits that these expenses are proper for reimbursement. INFORMATION RELATED TO THE REVISED U.S. TRUSTEE GUIDELINES 19. Fallace provides the following information pursuant to the Appendix B Guidelines for Reviewing Applications for Compensation and Reimbursement of Expenses Filed Under 11 U.S.C. § 330 by Attorneys in Larger Chapter 11 Case (the “Revised U.S. Trustee Guidelines”). 20. Fallace’s hourly rates for bankruptcy services are comparable to the hourly rates charged in complex chapter 11 cases by comparably skilled bankruptcy attorneys. In addition, Fallace’s hourly rates for bankruptcy services are comparable to the rates charged by Fallace, and by comparably skilled practitioners in other firms, for complex corporate and litigation matters, whether in court or otherwise, regardless of whether a fee application is required. 21. The blended hourly rate for all Fallace timekeepers who worked on this case is approximately the same as the firm’s blended rate for all timekeepers over a comparable period (defined below). In particular, the blended hourly rate for all Fallace timekeepers (including both professionals and paraprofessionals) who billed to matters excluding chapter 11 representations (collectively, the “Non-Chapter 11 Matters”) during the period beginning April 30, 2020 and ending on July 15, 2021 (the “Comparable Period”) was, in the aggregate, approximately $350. By comparison, the blended hourly rate for all Fallace timekeepers (including both professionals and paraprofessionals) who worked on this case during the Fee Period was, in the aggregate, $315.00.

22. The following table shows blended hourly rates by category of professional and paraprofessional (rounded to the nearest dollar) in the Fee Application and in comparison to the blended hourly rate for Fallace’s Non-Chapter 11 Matters during the Fee Period:

23. In addition, Fallace provides the following responses to the inquiries stated in section C.5 of the Revised U.S. Trustee Guidelines: a. Did you agree to any variations from, or alternatives to, your standard or customary billing rates, fees or terms for services pertaining to this engagement that were provided during the application period? If so, please explain. No. b. If the fees sought in this fee application as compared to the fees budgeted for the time period covered by this fee application are higher by 10% or more, did you discuss the reasons for the variation with the client? Not applicable. c. Have any of the professionals included in this fee application varied their hourly rate based on the geographic location of the bankruptcy case? No. d. Does the fee application include time or fees related to reviewing or revising time records or preparing, reviewing, or revising invoices? (This is limited to work involved in preparing and editing billing records that would not be compensable outside of bankruptcy and does not include reasonable fees for preparing a fee application.). If so, please quantify by hours and fees. Yes – approximately $9,000. e. Does this fee application include time or fees for reviewing time records to redact any privileged or other confidential information? If so, please quantify by hours and fees. No. f. If the fee application includes any rate increases since retention: (i) Did your client review and approve those rate increases in advance? and (ii) Did your client agree when retaining the law firm to accept all future rate increases? If not, did you inform your client that they need not agree to modified rates or terms in order to have you continue the representation, consistent with ABA Formal Ethics Opinion 11–458? This Fee Application reflects no rate increases.

11

BASIS FOR RELIEF A. Fallace’s Fees Should Be Allowed In Full. 24. Section 330 of the Bankruptcy Code provides that a court may award a professional employed under Section 327 of the Bankruptcy Code “reasonable compensation for actual, necessary services rendered . . . and reimbursement for actual, necessary expenses.” 11 U.S.C. § 330(a)(1). Section 330 also sets forth the criteria for the award of such compensation and reimbursement providing: In determining the amount of reasonable compensation to be awarded to an examiner, trustee under chapter 11, or professional person, the court shall consider the nature, the extent, and the value of such services, taking into account all relevant factors, including- (A) the time spent on such services; (B) the rates charged for such services; (C) whether the services were necessary to the administration of, or beneficial at the time at which the service was rendered toward the completion of, a case under this title; (D) whether the services were performed within a reasonable amount of time commensurate with the complexity, importance, and nature of the problem, issue, or task addressed; (E) with respect to a professional person, whether the person is board certified or otherwise has demonstrated skill and experience in the bankruptcy field; and (F) whether the compensation is reasonable based on the customary compensation charged by comparably skilled practitioners in cases other than cases under this title. 11 U.S.C. § 330(a)(3). 25. Here, the foregoing factors justify a full award of the fees requested. Fallace respectfully submits that the fees requested herein are fair and reasonable given: (a) the complexity of this Case; (b) the time and labor required to represent the Debtor effectively; (c) the nature and

12

extent of the services rendered by Fallace in this Case; (d) Fallace’s experience, reputation, and ability; (e) the value of Fallace’s services; and (f) the cost of comparable services other than in a case under the Bankruptcy Code. 26. All services provided by Fallace during this period have been actual and necessary. As noted above, the services provided by Fallace were limited to Florida litigation matters, relating to the WARN Act cases pending there, and relating to Florida real estate matters, as Fallace provided assistance in closing on the Florida-specific real estate portions of the sale of the Debtor’s assets. The services rendered were in the best interests of the Debtor, its estate, and creditors. The value of the services rendered during the period represent Fallace’s usual and customary charges for services of a similar nature performed for its other clients. Fallace’s billing rates are commensurate with the level of experience and industry expertise of the professionals at their respective levels of responsibility. The most experienced professionals are considered industry experts and have correspondingly higher billing rates. The use of various levels of staff permits the work to be performed at the most cost effective rate based on the nature of the assignment. 27. Fallace respectfully submits that it has satisfied the requirements of Section 330 of the Bankruptcy Code for the allowance of compensation sought herein. The services described above were necessary to the administration of this Case and were beneficial to the Debtor and parties in interest. Fallace’s services were performed efficiently and were commensurate with the complexity of the matters facing the Debtor. B. Expenses Requested Are Appropriate For Reimbursement In Full. 28. Section 330 of the Bankruptcy Code authorizes “reimbursement for actual, necessary expenses” incurred by professionals employed in a Chapter 11 case.

13

29. Fallace seeks reimbursement for expenses in the amount of $731.58. In connection with the reimbursement of expenses, it is Fallace’s practice to charge its clients for expenses, other than fixed and routine overhead expenses, incurred in connection with representing its clients. Typically, the expenses charged to Fallace’s clients include, among other things, postage, court fees, mail and express mail charges, special or hand delivery charges, photocopying charges, out-of-town travel expenses, transportation expenses, expenses for working meals, computerized research, and transcription costs. Fallace has charged the Debtor for these expenses at rates that are the same as those charged to its other clients, and there is no markup on any expenses, whatsoever. Fallace charges its expenses to clients “at cost” and does not make profit on any such expenditure. All expenses listed above are reasonable, were incurred in the ordinary course of these Cases and comply with the Local Rules of this Court. Fallace submits that these expenses are proper for reimbursement. 30. Fallace further submits that this Fee Application satisfies the requirements of Local Rule 2016-2(e) and its various subsections related to expense summaries and itemization. 31. Additionally, pursuant to Local Rule 2016-2(e)(iii), Fallace states that its rate for copy charges is $0.10 per page for black and white copies, while its rate for color copies is $0.80 per page. No profit is included in these copy charges. In accordance with Local Rule 2016-2(e)(iv), receipts or other support for each expense item are available upon request. NO PRIOR REQUEST 32. No previous request for the relief sought herein has been made by the Fallace to this or any other court. NOTICE

14

33. Notice of this Fee Application will be provided in accordance with the procedures set forth in the Interim Compensation Procedures Order and the Confirmation Order. Fallace respectfully submits that no further notice is required WHEREFORE, Fallace respectfully requests approval of its fees and expenses incurred during the Fee Period in the total amount of $49,129.08, being: (a) $48,397.50 in fees incurred for reasonable and necessary professional services rendered to the Debtor; and (b) $731.58 for actual and necessary costs and expenses.
