Art law

We advise galleries, art collectors and art foundations on buying and selling of art of every kind. We review the purchasing, commission, auction and lending agreements pre-formulated by the other party. In the case of “art made to order” we support the art orderer in defining the appropriate legal structure (employment contract, contract for work or similar) and in observing his interests (intellectual property and determining rights and obligations, if the artist is subordinated as an employee).

Owners of art can count on our support in all matters that may arise during their ownership such as insurance, hiring art experts, discovery of forgeries, restoration, and art theft, art lending, customs and duty resp. taxation and observing cultural heritage rules.
