Adrian Parkhouse

Spear's Review

Adrian Parkhouse has been at Farrer for over 35 years, with more than 25 as a partner. He advises established art owners and national institutions (as well as new HNW collectors) on buying and selling, tax, import and export, and philanthropy, and is head of the firm's Commercial Litigation team and co-chair of its Art Group.

‘As a litigator, the key problems I see are around ownership and of authenticity,’ he says. ‘Ownership is a lot less certain than people expect, the more so when items cross jurisdictional boundaries and different law may be relevant.’ One recent highlight was the court adjourning to Kenwood House for the juxtaposition of an autograph work by Van Dyck with its later version, and experts advising.
