Visual Arts don’t only seduce art lovers and collectors, but also play a social role by bringing together like-minded people or by provoking the establishment. They reflect the soul of the artist and sometimes of an entire era or society. Although numerous people are gifted with a creative talent, only few want or can make a living out of it. Once part of the professional circuit, many legal challenges cross the paths of artists, gallery managers and art collectors.
Our visual arts services include the following:
– Contracts, drafting and negotiations, between artists and galleries
– Advice and services with respect to arts purchases and sales, including due diligence aspects
– Resolution of disputes on authenticity, plagiarism and liability
Designs are applied forms of artistic craftsmanship and play an important but often neglected part in our daily lives. As well as influencing the appearance of the clothes we wear, the shape of the chairs we sit in and the surfboards we ride, design also influences the decisions we make as consumers: why it is we choose one toothbrush over another. The practice of design covers a wide variety of domains. These range from industrial design, urban planning, graphic design and stage design through to costume design, fashion design, product design and packaging design.
Our design services include drafting and negotiating contracts between creatives and producers, producers and manufacturers, producers and distributors; as well as solving disputes with respect to the transfer of intellectual property rights, manufacture or distribution contracts, and the infringement of rights.
