Entertainment law firm Ramo Law PC announced today that its Founding Partner Elsa Ramo is a nominee for the Los Angeles Business Journal’s ‘2020 Women’s Leadership Awards.’ This year’s Leadership Series and Awards is a three-part virtual symposium and awards event. With the goal of continuing to engage, inform, educate and inspire, this year’s panelists will cover topics of ongoing importance from leading through change and mentorship to the road to entrepreneurship and navigating today’s work-life balance demands.
Recently named to Variety’s “2020 Legal Impact Report” and 2019 “Dealmakers List,” Elsa Ramo has represented over 100 films and 50 television scripted and unscripted series in 2019 alone, including Emmy award-winning shows and films which debuted at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. Ramo 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.
Ramo founded the firm in 2005 on the Universal Studios backlot after several clients approached her to handle their independent productions. Now as managing partner to the firm, she handles client matters as well as manages the firm’s attorneys and packaging and sales department. The firm’s original concentration was for traditionally financed independent films, but this past year the firm has handled financing, production and distribution legal for a variety of projects. 2020 transformed the firm’s practice further to include representation of various forms of content providers who are negotiating deals with all subscription services including Disney+, Netflix, Apple, Quibi and HBO Max.
Ramo has become a lead commenter on the impact of Covid-19 on entertainment production. She has been interviewed on Fox 11 News, Fox 11 Live, and KNX 1070; she has been quoted by Indiewire Variety, and The Wrap (1, 2); and her article“5 Things Producers Should Do When They Can’t Produce” was published in The Wrap in April.
The Los Angeles Business Journal’s 2020 Women’s Leadership Award winners will be announced on October 21, 2020 at the Virtual Keynote and Awards Program. Click to register for LABJ’s 2020 Women’s Leadership Awards.
