How is Noble Street different from DLA Piper?
Noble Street and DLA Piper operate as separate businesses. Noble Street provides advisory services in the media and entertainment sector on a similar basis to an investment bank.  We advise investors and companies on how to best execute their business strategies, make introductions, negotiate deals and close terms sheets. At the point Noble Street helps you execute a term-sheet, we can refer you to the global law firm DLA Piper, who may be able to provide on-going legal services in documenting the deal.
How does Noble Street charge?
We charge a success fee on each deal. Because in most cases we expect to spend significant time with you in framing the opportunity, we will typically require a retainer which would be discussed and agreed with you in advance.
Is there a floor or ceiling on deal size?
Given the significant commitment we expect to make to our clients, we target a small number of larger deals. There is no ceiling to the size of our deals but our focus is on deals over £25m (or $40m) in size. We are happy to consider transactions under this amount on a case-by-case basis.
Do you need to be exclusive with a client?
It is sometime the case that we are asked to make a few introductions for a third party (sometime a DLA Piper client, sometimes another group that is advising a client). We are not averse to doing this, but our main priority is to work exclusively with a client in assisting them with a transaction.
