Power Lawyers 2012
You’d think signing Lady Gaga would make a lawyer very happy. But music vet Meiselas was floored in February by another client’s sudden death: Whitney Houston. “I was the primary point lawyer and interfaced with the police and dealt with the issues at the scene,” recalls the married father of four, who also handles deals for Usher, Mary J. Blige and Nicki Minaj. He now reps the Houston estate.
➻ Most challenging moment Meiselas attended court every day in 2000 when client Sean Combs was on trial for allegedly bribing his driver to claim ownership of a weapon, following gunfire in a club. Combs was acquitted.
