Services for artists

We represent artists and their estates with respect to a wide variety of sale, tax and estate planning issues, including setting up foundations to continue on their legacy, creating custom estate plans, the sale of the artist’s own works and related copyright issues.

We advise artists on contracts, print runs, installation and maintenance issues, collaborations with luxury brands, and book contracts. We work with artists to tailor agreements and commissions to suit their creative role.

We can also advise artists when their work is being infringed; by another artist, or by a businesses in a different sector who are copying work without permission.
