Art Legal
Company Size

Tim Maxwell focuses on art litigation as part of Boodle Hatfield’s impressively large team of specialist art lawyers. Art law and litigation is now so in demand it warrants its very own sector. Maxwell has worked on some of the most high profile and significant art law cases in the UK today. Highlights include cases surrounding the misattributions of a Titian and a Caravaggio and, most recently, the recovery of a Banksy, which was ‘cut out of a wall in Folkestone’ and taken to the US. ‘It’s a market where knowledge is concentrated among a very small number of people,’ he says. ‘So it’s hard for people who are new to the market to get the right advice. You need to know… who to recommend people to if they need specialist advice.’
