Art Heritage

We have long and extensive experience working closely with Heritage England and other bodies in relation to ecclesiastical and property matters. We also act for art and heritage charities, and provide advice to others working in the sector.

This area of law encompasses many of the specialist practice streams undertaken by the firm as a whole, such as charity law, intellectual property, commercial, and property law.


We can offer advice and representation on a range of legal issues affecting the art and heritage world, including those relating to museum artefacts, collections and other historical objects. For example, we advise on:

  • Art transactions
  • Creation of permanent endowment
  • Protection of works or property by declaration of trust
  • Establishment of charities to promote and further the arts (particularly visual arts and music)
  • Heritage property
