Edge Group[edit]

David Glick founded Edge Group[2][3] in 2004 with lawyer Richard Baskind. Glick's key innovation in legal services in the music industry has been to more closely align his interests with his clients by adopting a commission rather than a time-based fee charging system, although critics suggest charging commission has its own in-built biases. Edge Group clients range from recording artists, chefs and fashion designers to entertainment executives and entertainment companies. Building on its background in legal services, Glick has since diversified Edge Group's interests into corporate finance and investment management.
