LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Entertainment law firm Ramo Law PC announced today that Founding Partner Elsa Ramo and President of Packaging & Sales Tiffany Boyle, were featured in Screen’s 2019 list of “International insiders in the US: bankers and legal experts.” As part of its International Insiders series, Screen International profiled “the key US-based executives working in the banking and legal sectors.”
“In addition to transactional legal work on hundreds of films, Ramo Law places an emphasis on its advisory services and a deep knowledge of the independent space that saw the company take the unusual step of bringing on packaging and sales expert Tiffany Boyle some years ago,” says the feature. “The add-on value for international clients is not just Ramo Law’s ability to handle direct territory sales, but its function as a bridge between international filmmakers and the US industry. The firm has advised France’s Backup Media and Memento Films, UK producers Upper Street and Indian genre financiers Kavya Films, among others.”
Featured in Variety’s “Legal Impact Report” earlier this year, Ramo has represented over 100 films and 30 television series in 2019 alone, including several which debuted at Sundance, Tribeca and Toronto film festivals. She provides comprehensive legal services to producers, financiers, creators and owners of film, television and digital content and projects across a range of budgets and production levels.
“We are empowering our clients to also understand how their deals impact the marketplace,” said Ramo in the Screen feature. Ramo established her own law firm to enable up-and-coming filmmakers and producers to bring their stories to life. Her credits include the four Oscar-nominated films, “Call Me By Your Name,” “The Disaster Artist,” “Loving Vincent,” and “Still Alice.”
Boyle joined Ramo Law in 2009 and connects filmmakers with producers, co-producers, executive producers, co-finance partners, distributors, agencies and other industry representatives. Recently, she served as a Co-Executive Producer and brought in financing for films “Something Else” and “Arkansas” starring Liam Hemsworth and Vince Vaughn. She led the sales and packaging for “Tragedy Girls” and “Freaks”, brought foreign financing to “Ashes in the Snow” starring Bel Powley, and she sold an autobiography to Hulu for development into a limited television series.
“Today’s marketplace is changing from Toronto to AFM with regard to financing and distribution models. We’re at a fork in the road. Will international sales evolve, or will we move towards a globalized way of exploiting content?” Boyle asks in the feature.
With offices in Los Angeles and New York City, Ramo Law PC provides comprehensive legal services to its clients in the entertainment industry with a specialized focus in representing financiers, producers, and production entities in film, television and digital content. The firm provides experienced legal services to optimize its clients’ financial, legal and business position in the financing, production and exploitation of their content.
