Art law focuses on the art industry and covers a wide range of laws to help participants in the art world. Art law has a long history in Europe and the United States, but this field is not yet well established in Japan.
Kodai Kimura advises artists, art galleries, art related startups, curators, art consultants, collectors, and various companies involved in art projects.
Since there is a wealth of case law and literature related to art law in Europe and the United States, we are able to gather information, including information in English, and are able to draft contracts that are customized to Japanese practices and customs, as well as meet the needs of our clients.
We aim to provide advice not only within a legal framework, but also in the context of art history.
