Episode 12 of W Talks: Art with Diana Wierbicki

In this podcast, we discuss cases and investigations related to the art world. Our host and art lawyer Diana Wierbicki talks to Georges Lederman about the evolution of art crime, the government's criminalization of certain activity in the art market, and other art-related offenses that have caught the eye of the press. Opaque by nature, the art market has attracted the attention of both state and federal government agencies. Georges discusses the specific areas in the market that are becoming more targeted and what reasonable measures collectors can take to protect themselves from exposure.
