CHICAGO -- Following the threat of a subpoena, Chapman & Cutler has arranged to meet with the Chicago city council finance committee and corporation counsel to discuss the bond counsel fees it has charged the city.

The firm asked Tuesday to meet with the committee in the wake of concerns raised in June by Alderman Robert Shaw, who questioned Chapman & Cutler's legal fees. The firm has charged the city $809,000 since 1989, according to Alderman Ed Burke, who is chairman of the finance committee.
