Constantine Cannon LLP International Art and Cultural Property Team Recognized by Chambers HNW Guide 2022

Constantine Cannon is proud to feature in this year’s High Net Worth (HNW) Guide from Chambers & Partners. The Guide offers market-leading rankings, reviews and insights into the world’s leading lawyers, with a focus on private wealth management work.

Chambers & Partners build their rankings from thousands of interviews with clients, focusing on qualities that include technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial awareness/astuteness, diligence and commitment.

As in previous years, Constantine Cannon is ranked in Band 1 as a leading firm in Art and Cultural Property Law.  The Guide refers to Constantine Canon’s Art and Cultural Property law group as a “highly regarded London art practice” alongside Charles Russell Speechlys, Farrer & Co LLP and Mishcon de Reya LLP. An anonymous source refers to Constantine Cannon as “leaders in the field” with “a very efficient team who are really committed to what they are doing” – that is, advising “key world clients on market-leading transaction matters and disputes”. Another anonymous source highlights the firm’s “excellent responsiveness, availability and proac­tive communication.” A third source notes that “The whole team is reliable and good to work with. They are friendly and go beyond what is requested”.

Pierre Valentin, the partner in charge of the Art & Cultural Property Law Group practice at Constantine Cannon, is ranked amongst the 7 top practising art lawyers in the UK.  An anonymous interviewee describes him as “at the top of his game – he’s a go-to person.” The Guide refers to him as “a leading player in the London market,” regularly advising “galleries, collectors and artists on transactional matters and contentious cases.” A market commentator notes that he is a “consummate gentleman,” adding that “he enjoys what he does. He’s a shining example of loving the craft. … He’s careful with how he deals with the people. He’s good at digesting the law and it helps that he’s international. His knowledge of art law is great, and he is technically sound.”

Fionnuala Rogers features in the Guide as a Band 2 lawyer in the Art & Cultural Property Law category. She is described by one anonymous commentator as “very impressive – she is very knowledgeable in the art and antiquity arena,” and “brilliant, professional, kind and knowledgeable” by another. The Guide outlines that she “assists a broad range of art world clients, including collectors, artists, galleries and dealers, and is experienced in handling matter relating to the Middle East.”

The team at Constantine Cannon is thrilled to be recognised by Chambers & Partners for their work advising on a broad range of commercial, regulatory and contentious issues in the art world. To access the Chambers HNW Guide 2022, please download it from the Chambers & Partners website here.
