Sector team Art & Culture

Art & culture make us tick

Art & culture make us tick. We work for a wide range of (established and emerging) artists, museums and art dealers, as well as for art-stimulating funds and private collectors of visual art. We also work for theatre houses, concert halls and dance companies.

We advise and assist our clients in the realisation and execution of all types of art & culture-related agreements. For example, we have specialist knowledge of agreements relating to the (joint) creation and/or financing of new projects, agreements relating to the purchase, loan, donation and exhibition of visual art and agreements aimed at arranging collaborations within the creative sector.

If our clients are involved in a conflict, we aim for a pragmatic solution with care for the relationship between the parties involved. If mediation does not lead to the desired result, we represent our clients, if desired, in an arbitration dispute or proceedings before the courts. We have substantial experience with issues surrounding non-compliance with agreements, infringement of intellectual property rights, plagiarism, portrait rights, resale rights, the authenticity of art, art damage and art restoration.

Thanks to our short lines of communication with policymakers and tax specialists our clients can turn to us for all aspects of their cases. We are part of the Pangea network, an international network of lawyers, which can be called upon in the event of cross-border issues.
