Boodle Hatfield strengthens art law practice

We are delighted to welcome Rudy Capildeo to Boodle Hatfield's growing Art Law team. 

Rudy brings to the team considerable strength in all aspects of art law, but with a particular focus on the corporate and commercial aspects of the international art market. His clients include art galleries, private collectors, museums, artists and auction houses. Rudy also has a particular specialism in high value classic cars.

He has led a number of high profile art market transactions including:

  • A private treaty acquisition of an Old Master portrait for circa £20m;
  • Purchase of a leading Impressionist painting for circa US$45m;
  • Advising and negotiating terms of bailment agreement following the mortgage of Old Master painting by its owner; and
  • Advising a Mayfair gallery on potential breach of copyright in exhibition’s flagship piece

Commenting on his appointment, Rudy said: “Boodle Hatfield is one of the foremost private wealth firms in London. It has a very strong dedicated art law team that has been behind some of the highest profile art market disputes over the past decade. I am delighted to have joined and look forward to growing the firm's art practice further.”

Tim Maxwell, Partner and Joint Head of Boodle Hatfield’s Arts Group adds: “We are delighted by Rudy’s decision to join Boodle Hatfield. He has a strong appreciation of the international art market, a great track record and a good client following. We look forward to the contributions he will bring.”
