Representation

As an exclusive marketing agent, Blue Sky seeks out sports marketing opportunities that are best suited for our clients’ brands.  With nearly 25 years of experience, we know this industry better than almost anyone in the country.  New England is our backyard, and therefore we have a clear understanding of the value of every athlete in this marketplace. 

We have negotiated national and regional athlete endorsements, speaking engagements, athlete appearances, sponsorship agreements, literary contracts, licensing deals, product endorsements and tools of the trade contracts.  Blue Sky is proactive, not reactive, and every call we receive is answered in a prompt fashion.  Since we specialize in marketing, this is our prime focus in working for our clients.  We are innovative thinkers who seek out the best opportunities for our clients outside of their primary employment.

Endorsements

Blue Sky is an industry leader with over 40 years combined experience.  We have negotiated over 50 million dollars in endorsement deals.  We are skilled at maximizing the benefits of an athlete endorsement. 

When an appearance is not enough and a stronger relationship is desired, Blue Sky will work with the corporate client and the athlete or celebrity to negotiate an endorsement that will be the best fit for both parties.  An endorsement may include public speaking engagements for corporate entertainment, television, radio or print advertisements, special promotions utilizing the name, image and likeness of the athlete, and signed memorabilia giveaways.  Any company can rise above its competitors by aligning itself with a professional athlete who personifies the character of the company.  Blue Sky has extensive experience in managing such endorsement relationships and will work hard to find the best fit for your organization.

Representation

Media Representation

At Blue Sky, we believe that the key to a successful relationship with a client is to understand his or her career objectives.  We take the time to learn what motivates our clients and aim to find “their” perfect job.  We work with our clients to develop a career strategy, rather than just securing their next position.  Blue Sky specializes in the New England Market, knows the marketplace and works to ensure that our clients sign the best contract possible.  As experienced attorneys, we understand leverage and utilize it to negotiate and craft the most favorable contract language.  There is no such thing as “standard language”, as every talent agreement is different.  At Blue Sky, we use our solution driven creativity to ensure that each media representation client is retained under the best possible employment contract.  In addition to their employment, we negotiate contracts for our media clients to serve as keynote speakers, event hosts and to make celebrity appearances.
