If the judge approves the payout, it will be the largest yet paid in a securities fraud case
The law firm that helped investors in failed energy giant Enron secure a $7.2bn settlement hopes to earn fees of $700m, BBC News reported.
If the judge approves the payout to Coughlin Stoia Geller Rudman and Robbins, it will be the largest yet paid in a securities fraud case.
Enron hid billions of dollars in debts, in one of the biggest of a series of scandals that hit corporate America.
Investors won compensation from banks they accused of helping Enron.
These banks included JP Morgan Chase and Citigroup.
