Olswang spot on for Boyle’s new picture

Olswang has advised independent film company Celador Films on Trainspotting director Danny Boyle’s new picture. Film partner James Kay closed the deal on new title Slumdog Millionaire six weeks early after the team simplified the documentation to make it more user-friendly. Film4, the co-developer and co-financer on the project, was advised by in-house legal head Paul Grindey. Distributors Pathe Pictures and Warner Independent Pictures also took in-house advice.
