Prager Metis Launches Latin Entertainment Group
Prager Metis International, a leading advisory and accounting firm with offces in North America, Europe, and Asia, announces the launch of the Latin Entertainment Group. The creation of a dedicated Latin Entertainment team, led by Director Maria Del Pilar Lopez, extends the firm’s reach in the entertainment and music industry, which it has specialised in since its inception over 100 years ago.
“Latin entertainment has exploded in the past few years and shows no signs of slowing down. Our Latin client base has grown tremendously, and we realised that creating a dedicated team was essential to continue providing the best possible service”, says Craig Manzino, Partnerin- Charge of Entertainment. “We are proud to deepen our expertise in Latin entertainment to help our clients meet their financial goals.”
Prager Metis provides counsel to entertainment professionals and icons around the world. The firm offers a full suite of entertainment industry services, including business management, copyright and intellectual property valuations, royalty audit and contract compliance, and central withholding agreements for foreign entertainers and athletes. In addition, the firm specialises in international tax planning, private client tax services, and wealth preservation and tax planning for high-net-worth individuals.
Maria Del Pilar Lopez offers a full range of advisory and tax compliance services to individuals and entities in the arts, music, and entertainment industries. Her specialties include tour accounting, tour budgeting, business management, international corporate taxation, wealth preservation, accounting complexities associated with art dealers and collectors, and tax planning and consulting to high-networth individuals, private foundations, and not-for-profit organisations. As a bilingual professional fluent in both English and Spanish, Maria provides her clients with sound advice in their native language, assuring that complex concepts do not get lost in translation. “I’m honoured to lead the Latin Entertainment Group at Prager Metis”, says Lopez. “I look forward to growing this essential area while continuing to provide my clients with peace of mind and exceptional client service.”
