The Art Collecting Legal Handbook

The Art Collecting Legal Handbook - now in its second edition - is a cross-border legal guide designed to help collectors and institutions navigate the maze of rules and regulations when aquiring, moving and sharing works of art and antiquities, and eventually transferring them or attending their long term care.


Revised and updated, this new edition includes new questions and more jurisdictions for even better coverage. The book opens with an introduction from Marc Spiegler, Global Director of Art Basel and a forward from Sarah Austrian.


With 32 practical questions the reader friendly Q&A format allows for easy cross-jurisdictional comparison.

I co-authored the Swiss chapter of this edition together with Bruno Boesch and Michael Fischer.
