Attorneys representing Wichita aircraft maker Hawker Beechcraft in its bankruptcy proceeding are seeking more than $1 million for work they performed in June.

The New York law firm of Kirkland and Ellis LLP filed a monthly statement Tuesday. The firm is seeking payment of 80 percent of the more than $1.75 million it says it ran up in attorney fees, plus a little more than $57,000 in expenses.

The firm says 35 lawyers spent 2,444 billable hours on the Hawker Beechcraft case in June, with three partners billing as much as $1,045 per hour. Kirkland and Ellis also says a dozen paraprofessionals worked 260 billable hours on the case.

The biggest chunk of the legal fees come from work on employee issues, benefits and the pension.
