McLaughlin & Stern's art law practice is led by Peter R. Stern who recently joined the firm as Counsel. The firm has one of the largest art-related practices in New York City. We represent tens of galleries, artists, collectors and dealers. We are also involved with a number of foundations and not-for-profit organizations.
We handle a broad spectrum of matters touching upon the art world and its constituents. Many of these activities are corporate or transactional in nature; others involve trusts, estates and tax planning; many others involve litigation or dispute resolution. In addition, the firm has considerable expertise with respect to intellectual property matters. In the area of litigation, the firm is particularly experienced in art litigation relating to the authenticity of works of art, the ownership rights to works of art and the enforcement of contracts.
