Managing your reputation
Talent and creatives
If you have a talent; protect it. Success means different things to different people, but as soon as you start to turn your talent and hard work into money you can find yourself exposed to risk in way that you haven’t had to worry about before.
Your talent might mean you have found yourself in the public eye, or it might mean you are having to make difficult financial decisions about you and your family’s lives now and for the future. No one really enjoys conversations about what happens if you have to stop doing what you do, or about things like making a will, but it is essential to be prepared.
Working to protect your success
It’s likely you already have a strong team of advisers and family looking out for you. We work with many of the world’s leading music, entertainment and sport agents and either provide them with specific legal advice in the background as questions arise or we can become part of the advisory team. ‘We complement the services of agents, managers and other advisers, ensuring the decisions you take are legally watertight, every step of the way,’ adds Milan partner Luca Ferrari.
We are the largest law firm in the world dedicated to protecting, defending and championing the interests of individuals and work with a range of different types of talented and creative people. We can’t name most of them as one of the main things we do is help keep people’s lives private, but in addition to sport we represent established and rising stars in the world of music, art and fashion. Having worked over the years with so many talented and successful people means you’re in good company if you choose to work with us.
