Our art lawyers combine a genuine passion for art with deep legal expertise on matters arising from the purchase, loaning, consignment, movement, authenticity, provenance, restitution and of course sale of art.
We are members of the Institute of Art & Law and take pride in supporting both new and established clients in the art world.
We instinctively understand this intricate and sophisticated ecosystem and the problems that face the art trade, whether dealers, agents, galleries, auction houses, museums or consumers. Our experience means we are uniquely positioned to draw on an extensive network of contacts to deal with art-related matters discreetly and efficiently.
Whether we are working to resolve disputes over ownership or provenance of a work of art, providing advice on charitable gifting of art, or involved in the tracing and recovery of art including art restitution, it is our specialist knowledge of the creative sector that sets us apart from other firms and gives our clients confidence that their most valued possessions are in the safest of hands.
Our clients include artists and their estates, international auction houses, private and institutional collectors, estates and trustees, art and antique dealers, valuers and independent advisors.
Whatever you are trying to achieve, whether an individual or organisation, we work with you to support your aims and preserve your valued assets.
