Our Arts & Heritage Property team focuses on the ownership, exploitation and taxation of fixed and moveable assets of artistic or historic significance, including heritage property.
Heritage property has attracted various reliefs from taxation as a matter of public policy over many years and there is a body of technical law often requiring detailed knowledge of the relevant statutes and exemptions, together with HMRC and other governmental practice in this area.
Listed in the legal directories as one of the leading arts & heritage practices, the team draws on private client expertise in tax, trust and estate planning, heritage property, contentious trust and estates and charity law. This is complemented by expertise in many other areas, including commercial agreements and commercial dispute resolution.
Clients range from private individuals and family trustees to quoted and privately owned businesses, charities and foundations.
