Art Law

Art is becoming increasingly important as an asset. Especially in times of economic crises and falling interest rates, art is gaining importance as an alternative investment. Anyone who is active in the art market should therefore be advised competently and represented by a lawyer right from day one.

Art law is a complex cross-sectional area of law touching many legal fields including contract law, copyright law, insurance law, inheritance law, foundation law and many more.
We advise and represent all the different types of parties involved, such as artists, collectors, galleries, museums and companies or art publishers in all matters of art law.

Areas of focus:

  • Purchase and sale of works of art
  • Art lending and renting
  • Copyright in works of art
  • Auction law
  • Foundations
  • Insurance Law
  • Import and export of works of art
  • Restitution proceedings
  • Law of succession
