Please join us for our April luncheon "The Unduly Influenced Litigant: How to Litigate Against Parties with Diminished Capacity". The speaker this month is Adam Streisand. It has become all too common that as we live longer with increased incidences of cognitive impairment, which unscrupulous people are exploiting, our family members who can no longer remember their estate planning or the relationships with loved ones become convinced their families are the enemies. This CLE will discuss strategies and methods of litigating with the vulnerable or unduly influenced litigant.
Adam Streisand is widely regarded as one of the nation's top trial attorneys, particularly in high profile litigation involving private wealth disputes, fiduciary litigation, business succession and partnership disputes and litigation involving trusts, estates and conservatorships" (Los Angeles Business Journal, "Top Litigators", August 13, 2018).
Mr. Streisand is best known for his victories in courtroom battles over celebrity estates and, as Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times wrote: "Streisand was the lawyer who … rescued both local NBA teams." Mr. Streisand’s trial victory for former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer against Donald Sterling resulted in Ballmer’s $2 billion purchase of the Los Angeles Clippers. But, as the Los Angeles Daily Journal explained, what captured the legal world completely by surprise was his "particularly adept legal gambit involving a rarely invoked clause of California’s probate code" that made it all happen.
The accolades for Mr. Streisand’s stature in the legal profession are legion. The legal newspaper, the Daily Journal, profiling Mr.Streisand on the cover of its "Extra" section, called him “The Sure Thing” and noted that his resume is "a lawyer’s C.V. on steroids."
