Lin's New Agent Says First Task Is Weighing Endorsement Opportunities
Published June 22, 2012
MARKETING GOLD MINE: In N.Y., Howard Beck wrote Lin “is poised to cash in on his newfound fame.” He will be a restricted free agent as of July 1 and is "expected to command more than" $5M a year in his next contract. Lin’s family “has been unhappy with his marketing and has been seeking a larger firm to handle it.” Williams & Connolly is “mainly known for its litigation prowess and its insider credentials.” The firm also has "carved out a niche representing talent across the entertainment industry” (N.Y. TIMES, 6/21). Also in N.Y., Marc Berman notes Montgomery “needed help mostly because Lin is a marketing gold mine.” There has been “criticism Lin hadn’t cashed in with enough endorsements” (N.Y. POST, 6/22).
