Disputes in relation to art cover many areas of law in which various of Serle Court’s barristers specialise. Contract, intellectual property, insurance, charities, wills, trusts and professional negligence are the main civil fields involved.
Examples include issues of liability and quantum arising from the misattribution of works of art or failures to recognise great works; whether charities can or should sell works of art given to them in the past; recovery of lost or stolen art; and issues as to the propriety or otherwise of purchasing or returning stolen or looted art.
