Legato Logo


Legato Publishers Group is a boutique distribution service designed to help publishers achieve their growth potential. 

Through our affiliate, Publishers Group West, we provide sales and distribution services to a select and small group of clients, allowing them to benefit from the economies of one of the industry’s largest and most innovative publishers as well as the expertise, superior systems, dynamic sales force and clout of the largest and most sophisticated full service distributor in the industry. 

Legato distinguishes itself by working with clients that have high potential for growth and a willingness to work closely with their distribution partner. We take time to not only understand and embrace our client’s titles and marketing efforts, but to understand a title’s primary customers and what attracts and motivates them to make a purchase. Legato helps publishers get the most out of their resources and is fully aware of their clients’ cash flow and tolerance for risk.

Due to the fact that we work with only a small number of clients, our growth is completely dependent on our client’s growth. This shared goal creates a relationship that is unique in the industry and one we feel gives us and our clients the best possible scenario for achieving mutually beneficial results.

If you have questions about Legato Publishers Group, please feel free to get in touch with Rose Anderson, Acquisitions Coordinator, PGW:
