    You should listen.
    Tbh I just didn't realise it was the same client because the other agency was in touch over a week ago (a lot has happened since then!) and I have forgotten by now the name of the client. So when the new agency came along I just said sure go ahead

    Happened to me once, a long time ago, but 2nd agency pretty much lied about who the client was. Dodgy 90's agents, eh ?

    Just wondering.. They usually give you to copy paste some usual rubbish about exclusive representation to the client but I must admit I don't always listen to them babbling on about the client that they are representing and only research the client if an interview is given.

Working...
