Player Representation The professional athletes we represent rely on us to negotiate player and marketing contracts, to structure their business relationships, and to counsel them on all aspects of their professional careers. In representing these sports figures in player and contract negotiations, licensing negotiations, business structuring, and other matters, we provide the same services as are provided by traditional sports agents, but charge on an hourly-fee basis rather than a straight percentage-of-income basis.
Negotiating Player Contracts
We have extensive experience in negotiating domestic and international player contracts. Our philosophy is that because the player contract is the primary income source for most athletes, we work to offer the athlete many options. Also important, our team will work with the athlete navigate the complex relationships in his or her career such as with managers, coaches, public realtionships, and team owners.
Negotiating Marketing Agreements
Endorsements and product licensing agreements are not only lucrative but also can extend the player's earning potential well beyond the playing years. Many of our clients have enjoyed years of national and local exposure well after their last lap, play, jump, or score, We place special emphasis and attention on creating marketing plans that not only highlights his or her career, but also builds their reputation both in the local community, but also on a national and international level.
Creating Business Opportunities
Rainmaker Representation Group supports the athlete throughout his or her career. Where we differ from most is that we do not define a player's career in terms of on field playing time. In fact, we offer legal and consulting advice with respect to day-to-day issues as well as post-season and post-playing career. It is most important for us to foster and support our professional clients through the transition from full-time player to full-time business person, actor, graduate student, or private/public sector.
