Farrer & Co is "a very high-profile name in the profession," according to an interviewee. It advises dealers and owners, museums, charities, trustees and governments on disputes and transactional matters. "They are completely amazing. They are reliable, accurate and thoughtful. They are a pleasure to deal with," says an industry insider, adding: "They have an amazing team that is very considered and easy to deal with. You never have to question if they've understood something because you just know they have. A delight to provide a reference for them. They are absolutely on top of everything."

"They're excellent, all of them," says a barrister, who adds that "Farrers is one of those firms where you will never ever get bad service."

Notable practitioners

Adrian Parkhouse is "the most experienced art disputes lawyer in London that I have come across. He would be my first choice for any art-related dispute," says a barrister, adding: "He is breathtakingly clever, sensible, sophisticated, and is an absolute joy to work with." A fellow solicitor says that Parkhouse "is my first port of call for conflict referrals. I know he will look after clients well and they will get great advice."

Senior associate Isabel Paintin is "excellent and up-and-coming," according to a source. She has a broad practice advising on trust and estate planning, but she is also active in art and cultural property matters. "She's a wonderful associate. She is super knowledgeable, great with clients and thoughtful," observes an interviewee.

James Carleton is "very well known as one of the top art lawyers in London," says an interviewee. He advises dealers, collectors and institutional clients on cultural heritage matters. "He is a leader in the art law arena," according to a commentator, who adds: "He is highly intelligent, thorough and amazing with clients. I would highly recommend him."
