HOLLYWOOD — The Screen Actors Guild has promoted legal department attorneys Duncan Crabtree-Ireland and Alison Platt.
Crabtree-Ireland will assume the post of Deputy Assistant general counsel June 20, replacing Pamela Conley Ulich, who resigned to enter into private practice. He joined the SAG staff 1½ years ago after two years in the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office and will divide his time between supervising arbitration and managing his own caseload.
Platt has been tapped as senior litigation counsel and will continue to handle cases on behalf of SAG performers, with an increasing emphasis on more complex matters, along with mentoring less experienced counsel. Platt’s background includes seven years at the California State Bar and five years in the SAG legal department.
“We celebrate the wonderful achievements that Alison and Duncan have brought to Screen Actors Guild and know that their intellect, energy and enthusiasm bring a winning combination to a challenging job,” assistant general counsel Vicki Shapiro said.
