Grandall law firm have filed a suit against Proview, where they're claiming its 4-percent commission from the $60 million settlement. Sina Tech are the ones who broke the news, and according to Proview's founder Yang Rongshan, who called Grandall's legal complaint "nonsense" and said that his company would refrain from "bickering" over the settlement.

 

Yang claims that Proview is not currently under "normal operations" and is therefore not obligated to prioritize the legal fees. Proview filed for bankruptcy protection back in 2009, and is said to have owed as much as $400 million to a number of creditors, including some of China's largest banks.
