Successions and Art Collections in Argentina: A Detailed Overview and Applicable Regulations

Successions Involving Art Collections in Argentina


To begin with, successions involving art collections in Argentina require expert advice. Throughout the history of humankind, Art has always been (and most likely continue to be) a very complex category. In addition, it lacks consensus as regards its own definition. Moreover, one undeniable aspect is that passion is a vital and inherent component of any work of art. For example, from the artist who creates it, up to the audience who enjoys it… Also, it is this same passion that drives people to collect pieces of art.

As a matter of fact, our law firm specializes in successions involving art collections. To a certain extent, there are certain applicable regulations that directly affect art collections. And eventually, this requires a deep and updated knowledge on this subject. Due to our legal expertise, we can provide a series of benefits to the appointed heirs.

Indeed, it would be an almost impossible task to try to list the different kinds of art collections that may be inherited. For instance, from antiques, paintings, coins and stamps, classic cars, musical instruments, etc.

Unlike any other assets that can be considered just like an investment, an art collection very often involves a sentimental value. Consequently, it is quite challenging to determine in terms of financial worth. Moreover, it can be the subject of controversy among the appointed heirs.

Our Comprehensive Approach

Regardless of the legal proceedings involving an art collection -namely a succession, estate planning, or probate-, legal expertise is not enough to properly handle such a multifaceted matter. Consequently, a comprehensive approach is mandatory in order to provide the best cost-effective solution. Moreover, this is the key factor that sets us apart from the rest of any other regular law firm.
