Art Law Newsletter - April 2019
Welcome to the latest edition of our Art Law Newsletter.
Spring is the season of new beginnings. It is certainly true for us as we welcome three new partners to our Art Group further enhancing our art and cultural property capability. Tim Maxwell and Rudy Capildeo join our London office specialising in art-related litigation and commercial art advice and Mark Hill joins our Dubai office specialising in media, arts, commercial and intellectual property work.
Our Newsletter takes a closer look at the Deutsche Bank Art Collection and invites you on a journey to get to know our own art pieces displayed in the London office. Read about the unexpected connection between art and property litigation and live through the adventures of an art insurance broker. This issue provides great insight on silver as an investment and on the popularity of philanthropy among famous artists.
We hope you will find this issue an enjoyable read during the Spring Bank
