Commercial relationships between clients and media agencies have fundamentally changed over the last few years. With advertisers demanding ever greater accountability and transparency in contracts and agency management of their funds. Reed Smith has in-depth knowledge of agency non-transparent business practices and unmatched experience in negotiating media agency agreements on behalf of advertisers. FirmDecisions is a leading compliance auditor and remains concerned about the agency operating models, despite calls for greater transparency.

Whilst it may sometimes feel challenging to gain greater control over commercial relationships, we firmly believe that it is possible, with the right knowledge and advice.
