She added, “I want to stay at 5 percent commission but set a floor of $500k a year. Meaning we would not get paid less than the $500k this year 2020 so we would get a retainer payment each month and each quarter settle it up against the commission. Unlike the other professionals management and legal we are still having to do work even though B is not including the court accounting.”

Lou added, “Then next year we will look at time and billing again.” She ended, “Is this approved?"

We are not looking to true up 2019. Just want for Nov and Dec get a retainer payment.
