First boutique law firm specialized in art
NIAL ART Boutique Law Firm is the result of a passion for law and art.
After nearly 30 years of study, work, analysis and dedication, NIAL ART proves its will and its interest for art by sharing all its knowledge through its membership of associations such as the Professional Advisors to the International Art Market (PAIAM) and the Instituto de Arte Contemporáneo (IAC), by attending professional events such as the Meetings of States Parties to the UNESCO in Paris, FreePort Luxembourg, Deloitte and the LOOP Fair, and by contributing and cooperating with relevant institutions such as the Spanish Ministry of Culture, the Catalan government, the Association of Art Galleries of Catalonia (GGAC) and the Catalan Association of Art Critics (ACCA), as well as regularly publishing articles in the specialized magazines Bonart and Tendencias del Mercado del Arte, in addition to collaborations with national and international media, to which it contributes its know-how.
This long professional career and such a marked “ultra-specialization”, in the words of the newspaper Expansión, makes it the most experienced and consolidated law firm in the field of plastic arts law in Spain with an international presence and renown, allowing this boutique law firm to offer a unique, exclusive and exemplary client service.
