Art Investment Funds.

Art funds play an important part in the use of artwork as investment. These are generally funded by private offerings and organized to acquire and dispose of artwork in one more art market segments that will appreciate in a narrow, three-to-seven-year window.

We represent art investment funds in several art market segments in connection with their formation, private offerings, corporate governance, acquisitions and dispositions. In our experience, art investment funds can present different investment considerations and legal issues than funds in more traditional asset classes.

For example, we are special counsel to Liberi Partners Ltd., a Cayman Island investment fund. Liberi invests in well-provenanced, investment grade Greek Vases. We represent Liberi in connection with the formulation and implementation of its Investment Guidelines and Due Diligence protocols, preparation of its private offering documents, and its acquisitions and dispositions. Liberi has closed on the contribution of its initial tranche of Vases and commenced investment activities.

Please feel free to contact us with any inquiries you may have regarding art investment funds.
