NALFA hosts a podcast series on attorney fee issues. We talk with thought leaders, attorney fee experts, and attorney fee newsmakers who’ve helped shape and influence the jurisprudence of reasonable attorney fees. NALFA interviews members, faculty, judges, law professors, in-house counsel, and others on a range of attorney fee and legal billing issues.
NALFA’s third podcast features an interview with NALFA member and bankruptcy fee examiner Robert M. Fishman. Robert Fishman is a partner at Shaw Fishman in Chicago. The NALFA podcast with Robert Fishman focused on his background and his work in bankruptcy cases. Robert Fishman has represented a range of clients and stakeholders in bankruptcy proceedings.
