In June, Leaky reported that author J.K. Rowling had ended her association with the Christopher Little Agency.

The Telegraph has published a follow-up article to this story today, reporting that Ms. Rowling and Mr. Little reached a financial settlement outside of court. According to Mr. Little’s spokesperson:

“JK Rowling and her former agent, Christopher Little, have reached an amicable
agreement concluding their long-standing business relationship, the terms of
which remain confidential. No further
comments will be issued by either party.”

Ms. Rowling is now represented by The Blair Partnership, a new firm launched by
Neil Blair, her longtime agent at the Christopher Little Agency.

Everyone gets to move on without any muss or intrusive press coverage...Avatar Imagehermy007 says: good for her and christopher little! :DAvatar Imagekyrstalkris says: I don't what to say on this issue. Mainly because I don't know the back story. Were they conflicting? Well, I respect anything Jo does. :)Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: Glad this was handled without a big to-do, with the courts not having togetting involved. :)Avatar Imagerettophantom says: It looks like Neil Blair was always her agent, be just worked at Christopher Little, and now has decided to start his own, and Jo being just and loyal, went with him. That's cool.Avatar ImageGreen says: I have to say I am disappointed in Jo about this. It came as a shock to Mr Little and this Blair guy is a lawyer for goodness sake. He's never been mentioned before. It was Barry Cunningham and Christopher Little who gave her her start. Badly done Jo.
