Our art litigation team is deeply connected to the art world.
With several decades’ collective experience in representing large and small auction houses, art dealers and galleries, art advisors, museums, collectors, art lenders, art appraisers, artists and artist-endowed foundations, we are experienced in all types of art disputes.
We can assist you with the negotiation, arbitration, mediation and litigation of disputes. Our aim is to find consensual means of resolving your conflict wherever possible, as negotiated settlements and mediated solutions are often confidential, quicker, cheaper and less disruptive to your business and personal life.
If, however, litigation is the best course, we will take decisive action to defend your interests. We have extensive experience in ownership and restitution claims, authenticity disputes, and compensation claims when art has been lost, destroyed or damaged, as well as in cases of art fraud and theft.
Our art litigation team works with clients from all around the world, including commercial galleries, art dealers and non-profit organizations.
We also regularly deal with the ownership or sale of art in family disputes. Our private client, family and divorce teams in London, Hong Kong and Singapore have wide ranging experience advising on art and luxury assets in settlement agreements.
