Art Law & Estate Planning
There are many different things which make up a person's estate or help to establish their wealth. They may have substantial property, real estate, stocks, investments, income from business ventures or an inheritance, or possibly own extremely valuable fine art. Regardless of what the estate encompasses, it is essential to take asset protection measures, through the establishment of
wills or other
estate planning documents.
A knowledgeable lawyer at the firm can assist you in all your estate planning needs, including those involving the purchase, protection and sale of fine art. While some may consider a lawyer unnecessary when it comes to buying and selling art, a knowledgeable lawyer can go a long way in protecting your interests and rights. They can facilitate smooth transactions, gather potentially key information about a buyer, seller or the artwork itself, and ultimately minimize risks.
The attorneys at the firm are knowledgeable in art law and can help represent your interests in negotiating the purchase or sale of fine art, drafting or reviewing contracts, agreements, and other legal documents, serving as the escrow agent during the sale, establishing the validity and terms of auction house or dealer contracts, and litigating any disputes which should arise from breaches of contract, authenticity or title.
