Creative Artists Agency, an entertainment and sports agency, has purchased ICM Partners.

The combination of CAA and ICM reflects CAA’s focus on representing and servicing talent and brands.

“Combining with the best-in-class agency to build an even greater representation company for our clients and colleagues is the core strategic reason for this move. We couldn’t be more enthusiastic about our future together and are energized by the sophisticated, forward-thinking representation we offer clients. This is the ideal next step for our companies,” said ICM’s Chris Silbermann and Ted Chervin.

Allen & Company LLC served as financial advisor for CAA, and Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz as legal advisor. Lazard served as financial advisor for ICM, with Sheppard Mullin and Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP as legal advisors.
