ICM Partners’ Acquisition Of Stellar Group


Sheppard Mullin advised Creative Management Partners on the deal.

ICM Partners has acquired Stellar Group, the powerhouse London based sports agency, creating ICM Stellar Sports, a division of ICM Partners. Stellar Group is one of the largest sports agencies in the world, representing over 800 athletes (including NFL players), whose current contracts total close to $3 billion. The agency has over 130 employees and offices in 10 countries worldwide including the UK and United States.

This acquisition benefits clients of both agencies, as it provides Stellar Group clients with the expertise and impact of a major US based full-service entertainment agency to further develop their off the field earning potential, while ICM’s clients gain access to world class athletes to develop properties across the spectrum of creative and distribution platforms.

The Sheppard Mullin deal team was led by partner David Sands (Picture) and included partners Jennifer Lee and Keith Gercken and associates Aerin Snow, Bobby Chipman, John Crisp and Nicole Danesh.
