The Entertainment, Sports and Media (ESM) industries are necessarily global. Transatlantic operations are often essential and the tax considerations are unique. Frank Hirth’s dedicated Entertainment, Sports and Media team offer a specialist one-stop shop of US/UK dual qualified advisors with extensive experience of representing clients operating in the ESM markets.
We act for a diverse client base including large production companies and media organisations through to individual actors, artists, models and sportspeople, bringing together expertise from both our Private Client and Owner Managed Business functions. We recognise the need for joined up advice that takes into account all relevant jurisdictions and ensures the strategy and approach adopted in one location dovetails with all others. All of the team members are dual qualified, able to advise on both US and UK matters and fully experienced in the application of tax treaties in the entertainment and sports context.
We also understand that the ESM sector, more than any other, requires advisors who are able to provide more than just technical excellence. Advice must be practical and flexible, allowing you to be where you need to be, when you need to be there without worrying about the tax consequences. It must be collaborative, working seamlessly with your existing advisors and agents. And most of all, it must be streamlined and risk free, taking into account your biggest asset – your brand and reputation.
