Combined houses will offer clients 'one-stop shop'
LONDON — London-based agency Leo Media & Entertainment has pacted with law firm Fuglers LLP to provide its entertainment industry clients with inhouse legal services.“What we have here is a very unique setup, among the first in Europe,” said Fuglers managing partner David Berens. “Filmmakers, screenwriters, authors and producers will be able to come to Fuglers or the Leo Media Group and find a ‘one-stop shop’ where all their representation and legal matters can be addressed by highly experienced solicitors and agents, respectively. This will be far more cost-effective and efficient for clients.” Leo founder and CEO Alex Sullivan is producing Chilean helmer Raoul Ruiz’s epic “Love and Virtue,” which stars Damian Lewis, Peter O’Toole, John Malkovich, Virginie Ledoyen and Michael Madsen. Leo reps “Star Trek” scribe E.M. Lake and entertainer Buddy Bregman.
