Commercial agreements

We are proud to act for many high-profile entrepreneurs, luxury brand founders, talented athletes and artists. We know how to structure commercial agreements to protect and raise the profile of our clients.

Our industry-specific knowledge has allowed us to successfully advise Jade Jagger on license and design agreements, Christopher Kane on consultancy agreements and Philip Treacy on his hotel design consultancy.

No project is too challenging for our versatile team, who advised Damien Hirst in relation to the first foreign outing of his sculpture ‘For the Love of God.’ We were tasked with transporting the artwork, a diamond-encrusted skull worth an estimated US$100 million, from the UK to Italy. ‘It was like something from Ocean’s 11. We had three security vans taking off from three separate locations in London, and nobody knew which one contained the sculpture except me,’ recalls corporate partner, Anthony Indaimo. ‘It had never been done before, but we were successful in getting the contract finalized in time for the opening of the exhibition.’

A wealthy European family

A European family asked us to create an overarching trust structure to hold their commercial interests in the UK, Greece, Cyprus, Singapore and elsewhere. Resident in Monaco and London, the family needed the structure to operate as an estate plan, enabling wealth to be passed between generations. This was all done in conjunction with a family constitution governing the management of their wealth.
