It pays to be Prince’s lawyers … they’re raking in a ton of cash for handling the late singer’s estate and legal issues.
The special administrator handling Prince’s estate — Bremer Trust — filed docs asking the court to approve more than $2.3 million in bills racked up from July 1 through Sept. 30. As the estate describes it … handling “the complexity of the problems involved” doesn’t come cheap, and requires a bunch of high-priced lawyers.
The biggest expense so far is for the legal services of Stinson Leonard Street at $1,840,895.97.
Remember, that’s just for 3 months of work. In all, there are 6 firms listed as handling everything from claims by potential heirs to Paisley Park Museum plans. For the record, the lowest tab was for Broad and Cassel … which only billed the estate for $915.73.
Some of the dough’s also going to law firms in Italy and Florida handling copyright suits, plus a lawsuit in Cali to collect royalties.
Prince’s estate is reportedly worth 200 million bucks.
