about art law

 Kunstrecht.nl is an initiative of Bergh Stoop & Sanders attorneys and is edited by its art law section. We are the specialist in the field of (international) art restitution (looted art, restitution of cultural heritage) and litigate before the Dutch Restitution Commission and similar commissions abroad.

We represent (internationally) well-known parties in the art world and the performing arts. We are familiar with digital developments and the new legal questions raised by innovative technologies. Media and entertainment companies, individual artists, writers and musicians, national and international (content) publishers find their way to our art law/IP specialists.
