Ritter & Partner Rechtsanwälte was founded in 2000 by Dr. Andreas Ritter with the intention of building a personal and lean structure that deals with the diverse practical problems of the art market and other creative industries and offers tailored solutions for demanding mandates. The result is a partnership which incorporates know-how and expertise, international experience and a global network of contacts in art, culture, business and public life
Ritter & Partner’s key values are the high standards of professionalism, personal and solution-oriented client management, independence, integrity, reliability and discretion. Ritter & Partner has access to an interdisciplinary network of international correspondents and specialists in the fields of law, finance, logistics, insurance, taxes, etc., which can be accessed depending on the case constellation.
The cancellation of art fairs, live auctions, openings and other events has brought about dramatic changes in the national and international art market. The ongoing protection concepts and travel restrictions severely affect art dealing and collecting.
Ritter & Partner Rechtsanwälte offers support in connection with numerous new questions and legal challenges that have arisen since the COVID-19 crisis in the art and cultural sector.This may include support in the context of digital trading models, online due diligence, consumer and buyer protection and complex cross-border transactions.
