Nothing expresses the power of human creativity as well as art, whether it is paintings, sculptures, antiques or artefacts.
Our lawyers have broad experience with the arts, art business and non-profit institutions and have pioneered the field of art law, advising collectors, galleries, museums, private auction houses, charitable organizations and art market professionals worldwide.
We are acknowledged leaders in the field, having provided a whole suite of precedents to major banks in England, Hong Kong and Singapore.
We act for lenders providing financing against art works and for collectors expanding their business and diversifying their investment portfolio. Other clients include selected banks and valuation experts.
Our art finance team has been involved in a wide range of cases. These have included advising Deutsche Bank on a loan of £10 million secured on a collection of silver, and helping a high net worth client to obtain a US$150 million line of credit from a major US bank, secured by museum-quality works of art.
