Bush Gottlieb is pleased to announce that Kirk M. Prestegard has joined the firm’s partnership, effective January 1, 2021. Kirk joined the firm as an associate in 2013, and represents labor and employee-benefit fund clients in a broad range of matters arising under ERISA, the LMRA, and other state and federal statutes. He also represents a variety of public and private sector multiemployer pension and health plans in compliance and governance matters, audits and collections, bankruptcy, and litigation issues. Mr. Prestegard primarily counsels unions in the entertainment industry, but also advocates for labor clients in transportation, healthcare, and agriculture. He is active in the firm’s bankruptcy practice, which specializes in film industry bankruptcies, and frequently brings together his depth of experience across all of these practice areas in service of his clients’ interests.

Bush Gottlieb is pleased to announce that the firm has recruited Stella T. Maloyan as Chief of Strategic Development, effective January 11. Stella Maloyan, MPA, brings over two decades of nonprofit development executive experience to the newly created position, in which she will grow and oversee the firm’s strategic recruitment, capacity-building, and philanthropic efforts. Ms. Maloyan has also cultivated a vast network of labor, political, and entertainment sector relationships through her work with LAANE, the Los Angeles Tourism Board, and the Getty House Foundation, among others. “We are so excited to have Stella joining our firm,” said partner Julie Gutman Dickinson. “She is an innovative warrior for workers, women and all those in need of a powerful advocate for justice.”
