Wonder Sports and Entertainment Group started with a couple lawyers who saw the management of talent in a different light. Emmanuel Wonder is a former professional soccer player who hung up his cleats and a law degree around the same time. With over 10 years of playing at a high level, Emmanuel travelled the world as a player, while working towards attaining a law school. The decision to immerse himself in the practice of law was in part fuelled by his own management, or mismanagement to be accurate. His career was limited by arbitrary over-regulation and with his playing days behind him, he vowed to never let politics stifle a player’s career; he channels this zealous defence into every player he represents. Prior to starting WSEG, Emmanuel served as Legal Counsel for global promotions, advertising and manufacturing company Creata Inc., and in that capacity he also oversaw the affairs of the Jindilli and Macadamia companies.
Christopher Haris took a different route, but ended up with a Masters of Law in Intellectual Property. As a staunch advocate for people’s intangible rights, Chris has travelled the country in defence of his clients- be it a chef in New York who has his recipes lifted, or an inventor in Atlanta with a royalty dispute, Chris has worked with a myriad of talent in seemingly every field. As an IP attorney, Chris’s watchdog approach to protecting his client’s intangible rights has become a trademark for their firm and a standard that other agencies will soon aspire to attain.
Together Emmanuel and Chris founded Wonder Sports & Entertainment Group, a firm where talent has no hard-and-fast definition, just a beautiful struggle. Here at WSEG we see talent as the never-ending pursuit of passion. We provide clients with the freedom and protection that allows them to hone in on their craft and be the best version of themselves. Then and only then can they leave it all on the field, or in the recording booth, or in the kitchen.
The diversity of our roster is a testament to the fluidity of talent, and we let it speak for itself. See what makes us different from other talent agencies and take comfort in delegating to us, your every business and legal affairs so that you, can do you.
