The Department of Law & Public Safety released new invoices Friday from the firm Gibson Dunn & Crutcher.

The firm is representing Christie’s office in state and federal investigations into last September’s lane closures. It has charged the state more than $7 million so far.

The new invoices total $388,014 for May, $249,972 for June and $146,473 for July.

Gibson Dunn earlier this year agreed to reduce its rate from $650 per hour to $350.

The firm published a 350-page report in March.
