Loeb is pleased to announce that Entertainment Labor Chair Ivy Kagan Bierman has been selected by Variety for inclusion in the 2022 edition of Variety500, an annual list of the 500 most influential business leaders shaping the global media industry.
In the accompanying profile, Ivy is highlighted as the “go-to lawyer for showbiz employers.” She is recognized for being especially in-demand in the post-#MeToo era as both a lawyer and a pundit. In particular, she is highlighted for her skill in handling management-side guild and union matters, including collective bargaining negotiations, grievances, COVID-19 safety protocols, National Labor Relations Board proceedings, harassment, discrimination and bullying prevention and cultural assessments.
Most notably, Ivy is recognized for her work in 2019, when she negotiated a groundbreaking deal for Verve talent agency with the WGA during the WGA and Agency impasse and helped Time’s Up craft its safety guide for entertainment workers.
