Art Market

Agart advises a wide range of art market participants. We assist art dealers, galleries and collectors on all aspects of art transaction and changes to the regulatory framework and how they may affect our clients’ businesses.

We advise both new collectors as well as UHNW individuals with existing blue-chip collections. We advise on most aspects of owning a collection from set up to loan agreements, due diligence (collection audit) and sales both by means of private sale and at auction.

Practice Areas

Art Law Education

Agart realised there is a common misconception that art law is a separate area of law. Whilst the subject is art focussed, from legal perspective it requires understanding of wide range of legal principles of contract, tort, agency and bailment to name a few.Agart is passionate about art law education and often collaborates with postgraduate level educational institutions to deliver art law lectures.

Agart is passionate about promoting the understanding of the law and how it affects the art market which is vital for those looking to enter the profession as a career and for those looking to expand their existing careers within the art world in business and specialist and legal roles.

What our clients say

“I had the opportunity to coinvest in a museum quality artwork with Agata in. She was responsive, professional and a pleasure to work with. She is very savvy when it comes to due diligence and practical aspects of transacting.
I would certainly work with Agata again in future“
