We give our clients unlimited ideas and suggestions completely FREE of charge. We will contact the appropriate celebrity, personality, sports star, musician, comedian, or Hollywood star by the method THEY have requested to negotiate the best terms on behalf of our client. We prepare, issue and negotiate water-tight contracts to bind and protect both the client and the celebrity. We deal with the payment of deposits and arrange for the collection and payment of subsequent contractual monies. If necessary we will arrange for payments to be made “offshore”, or in other ways designed to reduce the tax burden of the Talent concerned. Sometimes it is only through thoughtful accounting in conjunction with our experienced lawyers and taxation experts that will encourage a particular Talent to agree to undertake a contract. We can make financial arrangements a big advertising agency could not.
We make all the necessary arrangements for the travel and attendance of the selected celebrity at the studio or other venue and personally supervise whatever activity is called for under the contract. We are one of the most experienced and reliable agencies in the world for any commercial activity concerning any type of celebrity.
