West End law firm Fuglers has set up a one-stop media shop with media agency The Leo Media & Entertainment Group.
The special referral relationship sees Fuglers taking on legal projects from Leo Media's clients, including work on new film Love and Virtue starring Peter O'Toole and John Malkovich. Leo Media will now also have access to Fuglers' clients, which include sports stars Terry Venables and Jimmy White.
Fuglers managing partner David Berens said: "What we have here is a very unique set-up, among the first in all of Europe."
Leo Media chief executive officer Alex Sperber said: "Our set-up will help avoid the current situation, where many people are faced with having to juggle between lawyers and agents separately at their own time and cost."
Sperber said billing will still be handled separately.
