The case of Kenneth Starr, the financial adviser to Hollywood’s elite now accused of being a sort of mini-Bernie Madoff, has all the makings of a story with legs — famous victims, very shady allegations and a lot of anonymous folks who are now sitting in limbo because of the work they did for Starr.

At the head of that list is Jonathan Bristol, Starr’s go-to outside lawyer identified only as “Associate-4″ in court records. Bristol is a Winston & Strawn partner who arrived at the firm from the now-defunct Thelen. Bristol is not charged with any crime and faces no civil charges. But he appears to be gone from Winston, though firm higher-ups and a spokesman will not comment publicly on Bristol’s status. Two sources familiar with the matter say Bristol is indeed gone from Winston, though one source close to the case insists that Winston did not terminate Bristol. A secretary who answered the firm’s main number Friday said Bristol’s name is no longer in the firm’s internal directory, and his old office number does not work. Bristol would not come to the phone when The Am Law Daily called his home in New Jersey.
