We advise and act as agents for owners and collectors of all forms of fine and decorative art, as well as for their trustees, fiduciaries, family offices and professional advisers. We provide impartial and expert advice on selling and buying works of art, and on all aspects of management and planning relating to it.
We are completely independent. We do not hold stock and are not dealers, and are not tied to any auction house or method of sale. We are free to choose the best course of action for our clients and our advice is always impartial, unflinching and honest.
