About Us

Our team at Art Resolve regularly encounters disputes in relation to art and objects sold in the international market, which allows them to get to the heart of a matter quickly and navigate the complexities and nuances of market practice to work towards a successful settlement. They understand the types of dispute that arise when art works are bought and sold as well as the motivations and concerns that typically drive parties to reach a settlement. They are dedicated to helping the parties to a dispute achieve a mutually agreeable, pragmatic and cost effective resolution.

Our team are currently all based in London but members are happy to travel when necessary. We can arrange a mediation venue if the parties prefer to meet on neutral ground. We are always able to offer clients a choice of skilled practitioners, who can make themselves available at short notice if required.
