Tax & Legal

The acquisition, ownership, and sale of works of art is a highly specialised field: whatever the circumstances, we aim to identify and deliver commercially informed, pragmatic and bespoke solutions for our clients.

Our specialists in art tax and law practice deal with art transactions and with various related issues and disputes. These include matters relating to contract, auction, attribution, provenance, restitution, artist’s rights, cultural heritage, intellectual property, tax and estate planning – including tax incentives such as the Cultural Gifts Scheme in UK and Art Bonus in Italy as well as inheritance tax conditional exemption
– export licenses, insurance, finance and collateral.

Our clients are primarily collectors and investors, agents and introducers, but we also act for and deal with artists, dealers, auction houses, museums and galleries, consignors, storers and evaluers.
