To strengthen its presence in Hollywood and expand its team of media and entertainment professionals, KlarisIP, a managed services and consulting firm, has entered into an agreement to acquire Evoque, an LA-based consultancy specializing in movies and television. This powerful combination uniquely positions KlarisIP to service the many different facets of today’s media and entertainment industry, including content supply chain optimization; rights and asset management; royalties, participations, and residuals; and master data management. As former media and entertainment executives themselves, KlarisIP’s leaders actively participate in every engagement and draw on decades of experience in addressing the needs of their clients. Whether clients have movies, television shows, games, photographs, books, articles or merchandise, KlarisIP can help transform their use, reuse, discoverability, and profitability by improving their data, workflows, and systems. “The Evoque team brings unique depth in the subject matter and a clear track record of success,” said Edward Klaris, the chief executive of KlarisIP. “Bringing Evoque into KlarisIP will enable us to even better serve our clients, solving their biggest challenges in the increasingly complex media and entertainment landscape.” Stephen Kassin, co-owner of Evoque, added: “Evoque is thrilled to join forces with KlarisIP, a fast-growing industry leader. Ed Klaris and his team have built a first class media and entertainment organization. The Evoque team brings a wealth of experience that will enhance and expand KlarisIP’s position as an industry leader.” This acquisition will also accelerate KlarisIP’s global growth, adding significantly to the company’s presence in Los Angeles. The firm also has offices in New York, Washington D.C., and London.
