Lawyer Showdown in Britney Case

2/1/2008 10:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsSources tell TMZ Britney's divorce lawyers and the lawyers representing the conservatorship may collide in a "last one standing" dispute.

We know Britney's divorce team at the law firm of Trope and Trope has been dealing with newly-exiled Sam Lutfi and believes he is well-meaning. Jamie Spears, the freshly appointed co-conservator, has made it clear he dislikes the Trope firm and wants them out of Britney's life -- in large part because of the firm's alliance with Sam.

Lutfi is furious at the commissioner who issued the various orders today and has been in touch with Trope and Trope numerous times this afternoon. Based on those conversations, the firm believes the orders defy Britney's wishes because she feels great ill will toward her dad.

So here's the scenario: It's possible Trope and Trope could go to court Monday at 1:30 PM PT and challenge the choice of conservator. If Jamie Spears is in it for the long haul, it's also possible one of his first orders of business will be to 86 Trope and Trope from Britney's life.

Stay tuned.

any representation of osama lutfi by T&T is a conflict of interest and will get them in hot water with the State Bar of CA - and they better be careful how much information they are sharing with him, as well,

How can they think he's well meaning? She didn't do anything she was supposed to do for court and went off all crazy doing whatever with Sam. Those lawyers need to go away. It's none of their business.

Um, This is stupid! they are her divorce lawyers and therefore should have no dealings w/ a case outside of that. They can't rep for Sam because that would be a conflict of interest! (or something.........this whole thing is crazy)

Do you people spend your entire evenings alone, on your computer, hitting the refresh button over and over awaiting any new tidbit on this nit-wit?

Step away from your keyboard. Get out of your house and enjoy the real world.
