Working for many of the most successful people and cultural institutions in the world means much of what we do is confidential, but it's fair to say that our sector expertise is unmatched by almost any other law firm. Our clients include international galleries and museums. Highlights of our work include a number of the highest profile matters of recent times, including the controversial Kenyan case and Richer Prince litigation matter led by our US partner Diana Weirbecki and myself in Italy. Our team is predominantly female, and we have a strong commitment to matters that help the empowerment of women. For example, the US. Team recently advised on the first ever all women Artists Benefit auction at Sotheby's, which proceeds from the auction to go to financial aid for a private college for girls. At the opening of our new Milan office, we hosted an exhibition titled Withers meets art, which featured works by Liza Ponti Joponti and Francesco Vetsali expressing women's strengths that demonstrates how withers goes beyond being just advisors, but also active supporters within the arts world.
