The firm

NIAL ART
/

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.
It has appeared in the best-known media, on television on RTVE, TV2 and TV3, on the radio on RNE, Radio Estel, Intereconomía, Más de Arte, Dialnet, and on digital and paper press on Expansión, El Periódico, El País, Arte Informado, Cinco Días, Tendencias del Mercado del Arte, Bonart and El Punt/Avui, among many others.

Specialized in the national and international art market, they advise and work for art museums, foundations, private collections, art galleries, art dealers, auction houses, antique dealers, artists, critics and curators, as well as legacies from artists and their heirs.

Invited by UNESCO in 2012 as experts to the meetings of States Parties to the Convention of 1970 and the UNIDROIT Convention of 1995, which regulate the illicit trafficking of cultural property
