Altogether, these 10 companies spent a cool $871 million on audits and audit-related fees in 2009. That kind of money buys a lot of ticking and tying. And half of these companies — AIG, General Electric, Royal Bank of Scotland, Deutsche Bank, and JPMorgan Chase — made the Top 10 for the second year in a row.
