Art

Here at LCA, we’re passionate about art. We have considerable know-how and expertise in the art market and are personally involved in the art scene in Milan, and more generally, in Italy. We have a specific team specialised in art law and taxation with a wealth of experience gained from years of providing legal advice to artists and collectors, museums and galleries, institutions, foundations, associations and auction houses, insurers, transporters and other players in and around the art world.

We understand that art and cultural heritage is considered among the most important assets for a nation, now more than ever. And we value its special significance in Italy and for the Italian people. For this reason, we will support you to protect, safeguard and optimise your works of art to improve their economic implications and image and guide you through the complexities of the art world and its endless operators.

Whether you’re a private individual or a public institution, we can assist you in a wide array of aspects, whether out-of-court or contentious, or relating to the art-network, including:

  • selling and purchasing individual works or collections, even through auction houses
  • drafting contracts for the transport, storage and lending of works of art, including for public or private exhibitions
  • managing legal issues concerning the organisation of exhibitions and performances, the rights of artists, collectors, owners and gallery owners, the activities of restorers, and relationships with institutions
  • managing all tax and ownership aspects of transactions involving works of art (sales, inheritances, establishment of a trust, etc.)
  • we’ll help you choose the most suitable insurance cover to best protect your works of art or the various activities connected with them
  • we’ll represent you in the resolution of disputes concerning works or collections and relations between operators and art players
  • we’ll advise you on the management of all issues related to intellectual property rights
