Dispute resolution

Dispute resolution

We understand the disruption and uncertainty which unresolved disputes can cause to the lives of individuals and the management of art businesses, affecting their reputations and relationships. As a full service firm we offer a broad range of expertise to resolve art and cultural property disputes, whether acting on behalf of collectors, artists, advisors, agents, dealers and other intermediaries, trustees, charities or institutions. We regularly deal with cross-border and multi-party disputes.

Every dispute is different and from the outset we assess the most efficient method of reaching a solution, outside of court where possible and in court where necessary. We frequently work with alternative dispute resolution methods that may also provide quick, effective and confidential solutions such as:

  • Mediation
  • Arbitration
  • Early Neutral Evaluation
  • Expert Determination

Our team includes trained mediators and arbitrators who are members of Art Resolve and may be able to work as neutral third parties in a dispute to try and resolve matters without involving the court process.

Our specialist team of lawyers share our clients’ passion for art and apply our legal experience and expertise in this area when acting for private, corporate, professional and institutional clients both in the UK and overseas. Our services include resolving disputes in relation to:

  • Art recovery
  • Ownership and provenance
  • Restitution and historical claims
  • Authenticity and attribution
  • Fakes and forgeries
  • Fraud and money laundering
  • Regulatory
  • Insurance coverage and recovery
  • Illegal export and import
  • Repatriation of human remains
  • Treasure finds
