Power Lawyers 2011
Wolf handles his share of A-list talent -- Judd Apatow and Steve Carell included -- but he's fast becoming one of the town's go-to film finance lawyers as well. He worked on the $350 million co-financing deal between David Ellison's Skydance Prods. and Paramount and helped Thomas Tull's Legendary Pictures secure a new line of credit. "The movie co-financing market is completely different from what it was five years ago," he notes. "Rather than being herded into blind slates, investors are able to select individual pictures. Also, the financial terms are much more equitable for investors and producers than in the slate deal era." On the talent side, he's proud of the deal he negotiated for Comedy Central's Daniel Tosh to be an equal partner in a new online venture.
