...My story

Hi, my name is Agata Becker and I am a Polish-born, UK qualified solicitor. For a number of years, I worked as a corporate finance lawyer in the City. Agart was born out of my passion for fine arts and the law.

I hold a second master's degree in Art, Business and Law from Queen Mary, University of London. Drawing on my extensive experience at prestigious art law firms in London and abroad, I made a decision to establish my own business.

Alongside my entrepreneurial pursuits, I have actively engaged in academia as a part-time lecturer, sharing my knowledge on various legal aspects of art and luxury to Master's degree students.

At Agart, my commitment lies in delivering exceptional service and expertise to my clients. To achieve this, I collaborate with a number of art professionals.

I am also dedicated to fostering professional relationships with underrepresented and emerging artists. Through promoting their work and ensuring they have access to the necessary legal framework for their business arrangements, I aim to support their business and growth.

My mission...

Navigating the complex legal landscape of art transactions can be overwhelming, even for experienced collectors.

Additionally, emerging artists may lack the knowledge and confidence to handle negotiation and understand legal issues specific to the art world.

Moreover, not every art institution has the resources for an in-house legal team, making the expertise of an external art lawyer essential.

Whether you are an artist, collector, or a cultural institution, I am dedicated to providing the guidance and support you need in the art market.
