The art law team at Herrick Feinstein formed Kaye Spiegler PLLC in June 2021. The firm's attorneys are best known for looted art restitution matters. "I think they are an absolutely top-tier restitution firm," says a source who adds that, in a previous role, "when they came to me with a claim, I knew we had to take it seriously because they didn't take a claim that they didn't think had merit. They are absolutely advocates, not only for their client, but for the cause."

Another source says that members of the group have been "deeply involved in World War II-era claims from the start," adding: "I have been adverse to them and there is a saying that it's always better to litigate against a good lawyer than a bad lawyer. Litigating against them typifies that; they go about it in the right way and they bring high-mindedness to the issues." This source also praises the team's aggressive but proper approach to plaintiff-side restitution work, which the source says compares positively against other plaintiff firms.

Spiegler handles art restitution matters and litigation, as well as transactional mandates.

Lawrence Kaye is seen as a leading figure for art restitution work. He and fellow Kaye Spiegler partner Howard Spiegler are seen as "exceptional" for this work and as thought leaders in the practice area. Kaye's practice also encompasses other types of art litigation and transactional matters.
