Art Law newsletter - July 2018
Welcome to the second edition of our biannual art law newsletter.
We advise a diverse range of clients on all aspects of art law across many jurisdictions. The Art market remains largely unregulated but regulations do impact many areas of the art world where individuals and business operate and invest, and have responsibility for collections. We are pleased to share with you our legal perspectives and insights, highlighting the opportunities and pitfalls for those operating in this area, including art collectors, investors, and advisers whose clients hold art assets, intermediaries supporting clients with art assets and those more generally with an interest in the sector.
In this edition we look at some topical issues, including the creative use of inspiring venues to raise funds; a "pink panther" fallout; taking risks with art and the Wedgwood Pension Scheme and the case of the disappearing museum. We also welcome an article on leveraging art from Freya Stewart, CEO of Art Lending, and review our first year of sponsorship with Somerset House.
We would be pleased to hear from you with any feedback on our newsletter, any aspect of the law that you are particularly interested in, or if you would like to contribute a guest article.
For more information please contact Suzanne Marriott, on +44 (0)20 7203 5267 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
