Our attorneys strive to offer practical advice based on their many decades of experience in the art market in both London and New York. JHA regularly advises clients on matters arising both in the United Kingdom and the United States.
"Our art law team has extraordinary experience as a result of their many decades of experience working within major auction houses, both in London and New York. Through that experience, they have advised on innumerable issues, whether involving complex multi-jurisdictional transactions or disputes involving highly valuable works of art. The JHA team has also worked closely with many of the most important artists of our time, leading innovative approaches to the sale of art. Our experience “inside” the highest echelons of the art world allows us to provide our clients with sound advice in the increasingly complex and volatile art market."
