Trained tax lawyer Diana Wierbicki is global head of Withers’ increasingly busy art law department, dealing with purchases, sales, loans, consignments and charitable giving. ‘Decades ago art was just like any other household item,’ she says. ‘Now people are paying more for art than for their homes, seeing it as an investment and not just a passion.’ It’s an endlessly fascinating area of law due to its growing importance, and Wierbicki is very much at the cutting edge. ‘It’s very exciting to draft a legal document and two years later receive a similar one to review and recognise the language as yours,’ she says. ‘To know you’re making a difference and helping to establish the structure of the law is… very compelling for me.’
