Case closed! Brooklyn-born attorney Perry Weitz has closed on two neighboring waterfront parcels on Robertson Drive. The $26.5 million property totals 9.6 acres and includes a 11,000-square-foot mansion with five bedrooms and 7.5 baths. Built in 2008, the house features double living rooms, a library, an art gallery, a gourmet kitchen, a wine cellar, and 3,000 square feet of covered porches. Founded in 1986, his firm Weitz & Luxenberg claims to have collected more than $8 billion in settlements, primarily in asbestos and defective drug cases. The law firm also has ties to Sheldon Silver, the former state Assembly speaker convicted of fraud and money laundering earlier this year. Weitz also owns a $30 million private jet and a $54 million yacht. [27East]
