Charles Russell Speechlys expands Art law practice
James Carter, Managing Partner, Charles Russell Speechlys, said:
“Art is an increasingly important asset class for our international clients, and with offices in all of the world’s Art centres outside of the U.S., we are ideally positioned to serve them.
“With this significant double hire we are showing our commitment to our clients in the global private wealth market, be they individuals, families, or successful businesses. We are delighted to welcome Tim and Rudy to our firm.”
Tim Maxwell is an experienced international commercial litigator and specialist in Art matters including Old Master cases and the highly-publicised recovery of a Banksy. He has been recognised for his work in protecting artist’s rights.
Tim advises institutional, corporate, and individual clients, who seek his work for misattribution, authenticity, provenance, condition and recovery claims. Tim is a frequent commentator on art law issues and also contributes on policy matters. Recently he has been involved in the Law Commission’s proposed reforms to luxury asset finance and issues arising from Brexit.
Rudy Capildeo has leading expertise as a non-contentious commercial art lawyer acting for a broad range of clients including private collectors, galleries, artists, and specialist financiers. He advises clients on a range of matters from the sale and purchase of art through to art and luxury asset finance.
Rudy also has significant experience in the classic car and fine wine markets, and is a guest lecturer for a number of leading establishments including Sotheby’s Institute of Art, Christie’s Education, the Courtauld Institute and the Institute of Art & Law.
Tim and Rudy join Charles Russell Speechlys on April 1st from Boodle Hatfield where they worked together with Tim as co-head of the Art Group. Their appointment follows the arrival of Ludovic de Walden 18 months ago from Bird & Bird.
