Gus A. Paloian, the Chapter 11 trustee of Dvorkin Holdings, LLC sought and obtained permission from the Hon. Jack B. Schmetterer of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois to employ Popowcer Katten, Ltd. to provide accounting services to the Debtor's estate.
The Chapter 11 Trustee requires the services of an accountant in the Case to, among other things, prepare and file a tax return or returns for the Estate.
Subject to the Court's approval, the Trustee is willing to pay Popowcer Katten its hourly Rates for its services, subject to this Court's approval of Popowcer Katten's future fee applications. The Trustee believes that the Hourly Rates are very reasonable.
Popowcer Katten will also be reimbursed for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred.
Lois West, principal of Popowcer Katten, assured the Court that the firm is a "disinterested person" as the term is defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code and does not represent any interest adverse to the Debtors and their estates.
