Most of the attorney fees a federal judge has allocated to the lawyers who hammered out the NFL concussion settlement are set to go to one firm: New York-based Seeger Weiss.

On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Anita Brody of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania awarded more than $51 million to the Manhattan law firm, which is home to Chris Seeger, who acted as co-lead class counsel in the $1 billion settlement.
