Most of the coverage of this $10 million Malibu beach house changing hands has focused on the famous seller. Music mogul Irving Azoff, executive chairman of Live Nation Entertainment and the founder of Azoff Music Management Group, has represented such mono-monikered celebrities as Seal, Jewel, and Christina (Aguilera, of course).

But we’re more interested in the buyer, a phenomenally successful litigator. Who is he, and where does he work?

And what does the inside of his new home look like? We have photos, of course….

Here’s a report on the sale, from the Los Angeles Times:

Music industry mogul Irving Azoff has sold his house along Malibu’s “Billionaire’s Beach” for $10 million. The stretch of beach got the nickname from its wealthy neighbors, including David Geffen, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Larry Ellison and Paul Allen.

The buyer is attorney Stuart Liner and his wife, Stephanie.

Where does Stuart Liner work? At a place where his name is on the door. From his website bio:

Stuart A. Liner is the co-founding and managing partner of Liner Grode Stein Yankelevitz Sunshine Regenstreif & Taylor LLP.

During his career, Stuart has represented some of the country’s largest companies with regard to business, commercial real estate and contingency litigation. He currently works with dedicated client teams established to handle the firm’s largest litigation matters in helping to set litigation strategy and conduct settlement negotiations. In this capacity, he has been involved in the settlement of claims worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

And of those hundreds of millions of dollars, tens of millions wind up in the pockets of Stuart Liner and his partners, which is how he gets to have billionaires as neighbors.

Liner is a graduate of Loyola Law School. He serves on the school’s board of overseers, sponsors events at LLS, and has been honored by the law school for his contributions and community involvement.

But enough about Liner’s do-gooding; let’s learn about his living the good life. It’s time for a tour of his new home….
