The LoPucki-Doherty Professional Fees Calculator: Evaluation
Enter an estimate of a large public company's assets at
filing, click on "Calculate," and the program predicts the total
professional fee and
expense awards from filing through confirmation. Additional input
increases prediction accuracy.
Calculations are based on the regression model in table 3.4, from Lynn M. LoPucki & Joseph W. Doherty, Professional Fees in Corporate Bankruptcies: Data, Analysis, and Evaluation (Oxford 2011). For confirmation years from 2008 through 2010, the output figures include an adjustment for inflation at the Consumer Price Index (CPI for All Urban Consumers 1982 ‒ 84 = 100) rate for the confirmation year. No additional adjustment is made for years after 2010.
