are you signing with the Agent or Agency?

You find an agent you love but before the MS is sold to a publisher your agent relocates to a different agency or starts their own agency. In that situation, are you signed to the agency, the agent or do you have a Jerry McGuire situation where the agent is frantically calling all their current clients, trying to get them to follow him/her while the agency is calling the same clients trying to keep them as a client?
Just curious how that works. Anyone have that situation?

In agencies with multiple agents it would depend on your contract. Dometimes there is a provision specifying that you can terminate the agreement at your option if your agent moves on (so you can move with your agent). The same thing is sometimes included in publishing contracts but only, I believe, for "heavy hitters" (these folks may want such a clause because after multiple books their relationship with their editor is important to them).
