Art & Luxury

Our team of specialist art and luxury lawyers advise a range of clients from artists, private collectors and international galleries through to governments, state institutions, museums, lenders, philanthropists and art fairs. We also have rich experience in other luxury assets such as collector cars, musical instruments, jewellery, wine and watches.

Internationally recognised art lawyers, Tim Maxwell and Rudy Capildeo, lead our Art & Luxury practice. Their team is routinely instructed on record-breaking transactions and high-value disputes, and has assisted on a number of important and ground breaking cases, while also saving collections for the nation and helping clients to achieve world-record auction results.

We continue to be instructed on ongoing cases, including title and artist representation disputes and regulatory issues including sanctions advice. We have been instructed on new disputes involving fraud and art financing and represent several street artists and collectors of street art.


The pre-eminent art practice. Partners Rudy Capildeo and Tim Maxwell are at the top of their field. Extremely well connected and knowledgeable. Petra Warrington is exceptionally capable and a star of the future.
