Me in a minute

I find the legal dynamics of the art world exceptionally rewarding

My involvement in art law began during my law school career and I continue to find the legal dynamics of the art world exceptionally rewarding. Working with private collectors and their family offices is especially interesting because we counsel on the life cycle of a family’s fine art collection. For example, with respect to a family’s collection we may assist in matters ranging from the negotiation of new art acquisitions, art collateralization, charitable giving and estate administration.

On a personal note, I am interested in post-war and contemporary figurative painting, Central European history, and interwar literature. I enjoy sport and can be found horseback riding and skiing.
