Hogan Lovells seeks allowance of interim compensation for professional service8 performed during the Second Interim Compensation Period in the amount of $2,164,980.24 and f9 reimbursement of expenses incurred in connection with the rendition of such services in the amou10 of $48,336.99. During the Second Interim Compensation Period, Hogan Lovells attorneys an11 paraprofessionals expended a total of 2,519.10 hours in connection with the necessary service12 performed. In an exercise of its billing judgment, Hogan Lovells reduced its fees for profession13 services rendered during the Second Interim Compensation Period by $76,052.76. This deductio14 accounts for certain legal research time and certain meetings where more than one Hogan Lovell15 attorney participated, as well as deducting charges for Hogan Lovells timekeepers who billed les16 than 10 hours in the application period, largely due to their being specialists in certain subject area17 and responding to limited issues. 18 12. There is no agreement or understanding between Hogan Lovells and any oth19 person, other than members of the firm, for the sharing of compensation to be received for service20 rendered in the Chapter 11 Cases. Except as set forth below with respect to payments Hogan Lovell21 may receive pursuant to the Interim Compensation Order, during the Second Interim Compensatio22 Period, Hogan Lovells received no payment or promises of payment from any source for service23 rendered or to be rendered in any capacity whatsoever in connection with the matters covered b24 this Application.
