Jenner & Block Partner Gina Reif Ilardi is featured in Variety’s 2017 list of “Dealmakers Elite New York.” “In addition to films and television, these power players, based in New York and other eastern hubs such as Philadelphia and Atlanta, handle pacts for Broadway, advertising and the music business,” the magazine explains.  This is Ms. Reif Ilardi’s most recent recognition from Variety:  Earlier this year, she was named to its “Legal Impact Report,” and last year, she was included on its list of “Hollywood’s New Leaders” and its “Dealmakers Impact Report.”

Variety’s profile notes that Ms. Reif Ilardi handles promotional tie-ins involving entertainment and media outlets.  Her clients include Chrysler’s parent, ESPN, Lionsgate, MillerCoors and STX Entertainment, among others.

The profile highlights Ms. Reif Ilardi’s representation of Edelman public relations in a contest for Adobe software that generated 1.2 billion online impressions globally built around a music video from rock bank Imagine Dragons.  “It resulted in a great campaign but we had to jump through a lot of hoops to get there,” she told Variety.
