Collections is a pool of independent senior lawyers to collectors, institutions, the trade, and to artists and their estates. They deal with fine art and other cultural property, from the antiquity to date.
They advise and act on acquisitions, finance, import and export, on loans, partnerships and other cooperation arrangements, on grants and sponsorships, on title and authenticity disputes, on donations and the long term preservation and promotion of collections, on tax, and on artist estate and legacy issues. The members in Collections exchange and meet regularly, keeping abreast of commercial, institutional and political developments.
Each member in Collections is an acknowledged art law practitioner, relying on the broad resources of their respective law firms. Together, the members in Collections can handle efficiently complex matters spanning several countries.
