Law firm's latest bill for Madoff liquidation is $50M, bringing total since his 2008 arrest to $440M


Since December 2008, when Bernard Madoff was arrested in a record-breaking Ponzi scheme operated under the guise of an investment firm, Irving Picard and his law firm have been handling the liquidation for the Securities Investor Protection Corp.

A filing in federal court in Manhattan shows the latest bill from Baker & Hostetler, for legal work and costs, is about $50 million, Bloomberg reports. That covers the period from July 1 to Nov. 30.

The firm has billed a total of around $440 million since 2008.
