PGA taps Livolsi for legal post

Guild names director of arbritations & legal affairs

Nicole Livolsi has been appointed as director of arbitrations & legal affairs for the Producers Guild of America.

PGA Executive Director Vance Van Petten made the announcement Thursday.

The PGA, which has 4,500 members, held its first credit arbitrations in 2001, promulgated a Code of Credits in 2004 and gained traction in 2005 when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced that the PGA’s credit determination process would be the one it uses on best picture nominations.

The PGA has also become the go-to org for credit determination for the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., along with TV nominees for the Emmys.

Livolsi most recently served as litigation counsel to the Century City law firm of Newhouse Seroussi Attorneys. She previously served as a staff attorney with the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and as a legal consultant for the horse racing gambling brand Youbet.com.
