Hobsbawm's HMC at end of the road

HMC, the agency run by Julia Hobsbawm, is expected to be declared insolvent in a July court hearing.

She said it was forced to cease trading after US film production firm Myriad Pictures, to which it had assigned the lease on its former office, left the property with significant rent arrears that HMC became liable for.

Hobsbawm is now trading as Julia Hobsbawm Consulting, with Transport for London as a founding client. She is setting up Editorial Intelligence in the autumn, which will monitor and analyse bylined comment and leader articles through a newsletter called The Opinion Former.
