Galleries, Auction Houses & Museums
In the same way that art is hugely varied, so too are art businesses. They are complex, often unique in their challenges and opportunities and, most recently, they face further challenges related to Covid-19.
At Boodle Hatfield, our Art Law & More team is considered one of the best in the field due to our understanding of the complexities of the market and our commitment to results. We are here to bring you specialist advice and we will partner with you to understand your specific requirements, whether you are looking for advice on:
- Commercial issues from specialist arts sales agreements, deal structures or employment contracts
- Loans or gifts by artists and collectors – we advise on loan documentation, contractual terms, and the terms of the gift of art to ensure both parties are protected
Resolving a dispute
Art businesses need to be alert to the myriad of problems that can arise whether disagreements about authenticity, title, damaged artworks, commission arrangements or breach of contract. We understand the reputational damage that such disputes can inflict upon a business and find practical solutions for our clients.
