Short Biography

As explained recently by the Los Angeles Business Journal, If you’ve seen it on HBO’s “Succession,” Adam Streisand has litigated it (and much more) in real life. Celebrities, musicians, pro sports franchises, athletes, and some of the world’s wealthiest individuals and families turn to Streisand for battles over inheritance, fiduciary conduct and business succession. While Streisand is known for his sweeping victories in high-profile courtroom battles involving celebrity estates, he has also become the go-to trial lawyer whenever the fate of a national sports franchise is on the line, including trust wars over control of the LA Lakers, LA Clippers, LA Chargers and Baltimore Orioles. Streisand also earned acclaim as Britney Spears’ first choice of attorney in her conservatorship case.
