The literary agency is making 10 junior agents redundant as part of its merger with Michael Foster’s MF Management.

Matthew Freud is the new agency’s biggest minority shareholder. Nevertheless, The Rights House is confident it’s going to make some big signings from rivals UA and Independent soon. It’s going to be fascinating watching from the sidelines, seeing who’s going to jump.
