As of December 31, 2020, we paid approximately $5.1 million to third parties to settle outstanding amounts incurred by Mr. Houston for reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses. We also paid Mr. Houston approximately $1.4 million for other expenses he incurred in connection with the litigation. As of December 31, 2020, a balance of approximately $0.9 million remained owed to Mr. Houston and has been classified within Accounts payable due to related parties on the Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Accounts Receivable due from Related Parties
The approximately $1.3 million in accounts receivable due from related parties consisted of tax indemnities from employees who received share-based compensation in 2016. The statute of limitations related to the tax indemnities expired in October 2020; therefore, this receivable is no longer warranted.
OtherA member of our board of directors is a partner at a law firm that has provided legal services to the Company. Fees incurred for such services were approximately $0.1 million, $0.4 million and $0.1 million for the years ended December 31, 2020, 2019 and 2018, respectively.
