Now that her longtime attorney, Samuel Ingham, has resigned, reports are saying that Britney Spears wishes celebrity lawyer Mathew Rosengart represented her in court amid her conservatorship battle. Check out the insider details!
This was first reported by TMZ, the outlet claiming that the pop star wants Rosengart to take over the position Ingham used to have on her legal team.
Not only that but, it is being reported that she’s already taken necessary steps towards making that wish a reality!
More precisely, she’s allegedly already signed documents requesting he takes over as her new lawyer.
The documents supposedly read: ‘Pursuant to my statement in open court on June 23, my rights, and my desire to end the above referenced conservatorship as to my father Jamie Spears, it’s my desire to choose and retain my counsel, at Greenberg, Traurig, LLP as set forth above.’
If true, that would most likely be a good move for Britney since Mathew has built himself a great reputation in Hollywood as a lawyer to the stars, working in media, commercial and entertainment litigation.
Not only that but, he was even acknowledged as one of Hollywood’s Top 100 Attorneys by The Hollywood Reporter this year.
This update comes after the singer’s former attorney, Sam Ingham, filed documents in which he was announcing his resignation.
As per Deadline, he wrote: ‘It has been over 2 and a half years since Britney and I last talked, at which time she just informed me she wanted to take an indefinite hiatus from work. Earlier today, I became aware Britney had been voicing her intentions to officially retire. As you know, I’ve never been part of her conservatorship nor its operations, so I’m not privy to many of these details. I was hired at Britney’s request to help manage and assist with her career originally. And as her manager, I believe it’s in Britney’s best interest for me to resign from her team since my professional services are no longer needed.’
