Leigh Eisenman is a literary agent with Wolf Literary Services. She is a literary agent and an attorney with Wolf Literary Services. She is an experienced lawyer who has been practicing in New York since 2003. After ten years of practicing in the New York offices of several international law firms, Leigh shifted her focus to the publishing industry. Since then, she has handled publishing and publishing-adjacent agreements and matters on behalf of several agencies and law firms. From 2003 until 2014 she specialized in commercial, white collar, and securities litigation. Leigh received her juris doctorate from the University of Virginia School of Law and graduated magna cum laude from Dartmouth College. She serves on the Contracts Committee of the Association of American Literary Agents. She is admitted to practice in New York.
As an agent, Leigh represents primarily adult nonfiction and select literary and commercial fiction. On the nonfiction side, she loves working on illustrated books of all stripes—including cookbooks, lifestyle, the arts, pop culture, travel, humor/gift, health and wellness, and self-care, as well as personal finance, personal/professional development, and memoir. In fiction, she’s drawn to present day (not historical), realistic (no sci fi or fantasy) stories that transport her through a vivid, well-defined sense of place and explorations of relationships (including journeys of self-discovery). Across both, she’s drawn to fresh voices and perspectives.
