Additionally, we advise in relation to the sale and purchase of all types of artworks from antiquities to contemporary pieces including private or auction sales and acquisitions of entire collections, high profile loans, significant artist commissions, art finance and investments (including various models of art funds), commercial advice and multi-jurisdiction litigation. We are also extremely experienced in museum, gallery and exhibition matters and advise on all aspects of exhibition work including PR and communications, IP and merchandising, catalogues and publishing, loans of objects internationally, subcontracts for installations, and design and scenography.
