Submitting an Order of Payment
Clear instructions concerning the amount, the payee, and the delivery address are essential. Unless the text of the order specifically directs otherwise or counsel has given us authorization, all disbursements are made payable to the payee client, and delivered to the payee's counsel. Address information should be provided in the order.
When you submit an Order of Payment to the Court, please include explicit payment instructions.
