The Legal 500
Fountain Court members have been involved in numerous significant matters involving art, antiques, jewellery, rare cars and many other valuable items.
Members act on cases involving issues of authenticity and provenance, ownership and title issues and intellectual property-related claims. They have also advised various entities including auction houses on professional duties, procedures and regulatory obligations. Our track record in cases relating to conflicts of law and jurisdiction also complements our work in this sector along with our employment expertise.
