Art law newsletter

Welcome to the first edition of our new biannual art law newsletter.

We advise a diverse range of clients on all aspects of art law across many jurisdictions, mainly from our London and Geneva offices. The art world remains largely unregulated and we are keen to highlight the opportunities and pitfalls for those operating in this area, including art collectors, investors, intermediaries supporting clients with art assets and those more generally with an interest in the sector. We are pleased to share with you our legal perspectives and insights, which we hope you will find helpful.

In this edition we look at some topical issues, including artists' resale rights and whether Brexit will have an impact on them; the legal realities around virtual art sales; and Julia Chan from our corporate team discusses her career change from antique violin dealer to City lawyer. We are also delighted to include a guest article from Stonehage Fleming on the practicalities of art collecting.
