Laura Fox was named VP of legal affairs for Walt Disney Pictures and Touchstone Pictures Monday, bumping her up from director of business affairs.
Fox will be responsible for legal affairs related to Walt Disney and Touchstone projects.
She also will be involved in supervising contract negotiations for theatrical projects and stage plays developed by Walt Disney Studios.
Fox’s is the latest in a spate of promotions handed down to Walt Disney Studios executives, including president of production designations for Touchstone Pictures’ Donald De Line and Walt Disney Pictures’ David Vogel (Daily Variety, Dec. 13).
In addition, attorney Katie O’Connell was boosted last week to senior VP, business and legal affairs, for Walt Disney Pictures and Touchstone Pictures — a promotion that places her as chief liaison to Joe Roth and Roger Birnbaum’s Caravan Pictures.
