Takata air bag components presented before a hearing of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation on Nov. 20, 2014.

Scandal-plagued Takata Corp. reached an agreement this week with automakers and lawyers representing victims of explosive air bags that will speed the U.S. arm of the Japanese auto parts company toward a bankruptcy exit.

The agreement reached over the weekend represents a win for Takata’s bankruptcy lawyers at Weil, Gotshal & Manges led by business finance and restructuring partners Marcia Goldstein and Ronit Berkovich in New York.

The firm charged a bit more than $15 million for its work on the Chapter 11 case from August through December, according to court filings, with partners billing a blended rate of about $1,100 an hour and associates charging about $770 an hour. Richards, Layton & Finger, local Delaware counsel to Takata, has charged about $1.65 million for its services during the same six-month billing schedule.
