Russell Busch

Senior Associate

Mr. Russell Busch is a Milberg Senior Associate with a passion for leveling the playing field for people who have been wronged by large corporations that would otherwise go unchecked. This allows him to bring not only his passion but experience and expertise in class action and mass tort to Milberg’s team.

Mr. Busch began his legal career in 2018 with Wittles Law, a boutique plaintiff’s class action firm in New York. There, he focused on labor law, employment discrimination, and consumer fraud.

After completing his law degree from the University of Michigan Law School in 2018, he passed the Illinois bar that same year. However, his pursuits didn’t stop there; he passed the New York bar in 2020 and was admitted in 2021.

Outside the office, when he isn’t taking on big companies’ willing negligence and harmful actions, Mr. Busch enjoys playing 1993’s digital rave: Magic (the first trading card game in history).
