Life as a Hollywood lawyer

Divas populate the walls of Leah Weil's office in the Thalberg building on the Sony lot: Patti LuPone, Alicia Keys, Bette Midler and Barbra Streisand. But a decade into her run as the studio's top lawyer, Weil presides over perhaps the most drama-free operation in town. The senior executive vp and general counsel of Sony Pictures Entertainment is THR's Raising the Bar honoree because she has successfully put out fires for an unusually broad group of divisions -- she oversees global theatrical, home entertainment, digital, television, government affairs, music, acquisitions, compliance, litigation, intellectual property and labor -- all while balancing two kids and a mild addiction to Broadway musicals.
