He’s a lawyer 4 her.

Attorney Mathew Rosengart has agreed to be Britney Spears’ new legal representation in her conservatorship fight, Page Six can confirm.

“Britney has had multiple conversations with Mathew in recent days,” a source told us Tuesday. “She was concerned about what was going to happen after [Samuel D. Ingham III] resigned as her lawyer, but Mathew has assured her that she will be in good hands if the judge appoints him.

“He has been keeping close tabs on her case for a while now and felt that her testimony last month was very compelling. He’ll be in court tomorrow.”

Rosengart, a former federal prosecutor, has worked for a number of A-listers including Ben Affleck, Steven Spielberg and Sean Penn.

Ingham, Spears’ lawyer since the 2008 start of the conservatorship, asked to resign from her case shortly after the star made claims about his representation during her 24-minute bombshell testimony in June.

At one point, she claimed she was never made aware of the fact she “could petition [for] the conservatorship to end,” professing, “I honestly didn’t know that.”

Ingham was “extremely upset” by the statement, according to sources at TMZ, who claimed he had made that fact very clear to the pop star. The sources further alleged that Spears had expressed to Ingham that she only wanted to remove her father, Jamie Spears, from his role in the conservatorship and not end it altogether.

In addition to Ingham, the “Womanizer” singer lost her manager, Larry Rudolph, who quit less than a week after the co-conservator of her estate, Bessemer Trust, announced its exit. Rudolph claimed his departure was due to Spears’ intent to retire from music, which the singer has not addressed further.
