We know our stuff.

We’ve been securing talent for a long time. That’s important in this business.
We recommend the most strategic talent; counsel on what to pay the talent; and structure the essential legal documents.

We work for the companies, PR firms, digital agencies and non-profits – not the talent.

That’s key. Our focus is on meeting our client’s objectives, protecting their interests and saving them money.

OUR SERVICES

STRATEGY
for talent ideas

Adding talent to a campaign or event increases brand awareness, attracts the media and generates excitement – But it must be the right talent.

We provide recommendations of celebrities and speakers that strategically align with the program goals.

We ensure the talent appeals to the target audience, possesses the appropriate skills to successfully execute the services and falls within budget.

KNOWLEDGE
of talent fees

Talent fees vary depending upon services needed and current status, achievement and buzz-factor of the talent.

There is no such thing as a “day rate”.
We understand this.

We provide valuable counsel on what to pay the talent to ensure our clients maximize the program services and their budget.

GUIDANCE
on legal agreements

We provide the valuable service to companies, agencies and non-profits of helping negotiate and draft all necessary offer letters and agreements.

We encourage our clients to protect their interests by clearly defining the talent’s services and including crucial provisions for Exclusivity, Term of Use and Termination.

We’ve been involved in thousands of talent agreements to make sure it’s done right.
