In September, a committee of unsecured creditors hired Dechert to represent them in the bankruptcy of Benitago Group, an Amazon e-commerce business acquirer. At most, Dechert would charge them $2,000 per hour, according to an employment application in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.

While Dechert’s current top-billing partner for the Benitago bankruptcy costs $1,825 hourly, the law firm disclosed a 20% rate increase for its top partner of $2,400 hourly in a recent court filing.
