WIF Attorney Lisa Callif is one of The Hollywood Reporter’s Top 100 Attorneys of 2017.
“If you’ve got a documentary in the works, Callif and partner Michael Donaldson are the ones you call to make sure your subjects don’t sue. This year’s Sundance festival featured nearly two dozen films by her firm’s clients, including the feature Ingrid Goes West, which she calls a modern-day Single White Female. When Instagram wouldn’t give permission to use its logo in the film, Callif didn’t bat an eye. “We wrote an opinion letter saying it’s fine to use these logos,” she says. “You can’t make a movie set in the present day without using social media.”
