Jud Laghi formed his eponymous agency in 2010, after working as a Senior Agent at LJK Literary Management and at ICM, where he began his agenting career. He has represented, developed and launched a number of trendsetting and bestselling books throughout his career, and his clients include a diverse range of writers who contribute to The New York Times, Rolling Stone, New York, Spin, ESPN.com, Wired, Fast Company, GQ, Sports Illustrated, The Atlantic, The Believer, Slate, Science and This American Life. He graduated from Trinity College with a B.A. in English and creative writing.
Jud works closely with his clients at every stage of the publishing process. His hands-on style includes significant editorial guidance on proposals and manuscripts for the strongest possible publisher submission, and an exploration of all potential opportunities for boosting the marketing and publicity of his clients’ books once they have been published, as well as foreign publishing, film, TV, merchandising rights, and the broad range of possibilities that continue to develop in digital and online media.
