ICM Partners Pacts with Gelfman Schneider Agency

Alliance calls for percenteries to co-rep author and journalist clients

ICM Partners has set a strategic alliance with Gotham-based Gelfman Schneider Literary Agents, bringing such scribes as Jeffrey Deaver, Tracy Chevalier, David Rabe and Evan Hunter/Ed McBain into the fold.

Deal calls for ICM and Gelfman Schneider agents to co-sign and co-represent authors and journalists. The partnership gives ICM access to Gelfman Schneider’s impressive list and affords the lit boutique the larger infrastructure of ICM for repping properties for film, TV and stage adaptations, among other deals.

Gelfman Schneider, run by principals Jane Gelfman and Deborah Schneider, will operate under the new moniker of Gelfman Schneider/ICM Partners and retain its Seventh Avenue offices.

“Joining forces with an agency of ICM’s international stature gives us the power to stay more competitive  and more efficient in a changing marketplace,” Gelfman and Schneider said in a statement.

ICM’s pact with Gelfman Schneider comes on the heels of a similar deal the agency struck last year with Washington, D.C.-based Sagalyn Agency.

“Publishing is experience in a sea change, and there is tremendous opportunity for authors to grow and expand their brands in this environment,” the ICM partners said in a statement.
