Payne Hicks Beach strengthens Private Client team with art specialist hire

Leading London law firm Payne Hicks Beach is pleased to announce the appointment of art and cultural property specialist, Till Vere-Hodge, Partner in the Private Client team.

Till joins the firm from Constantine Cannon and brings to Payne Hicks Beach his experience of advising on all aspects of art and cultural property law for international private collectors, art dealers and auction houses, galleries and museums, as well as art investors and advisors in relation to both, contentious and non-contentious matters.

With experience of handling restitution claims to artworks looted before, during and after World War II, Till has advised claimants and heirs to such artworks, provenance researchers and other stakeholders. He has also assisted clients with the management of media relations during such sensitive periods of time. 

Before joining Constantine Cannon, Till was an associate at the London office of a New York-headquartered international law firm. Prior to his career in the law, he worked for three and a half years as a Public Diplomacy Officer at the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in London. During that time, he worked for three German ambassadors to the Court of St. James and advised the German Foreign Office in Berlin on the latest political, economic and cultural developments in the UK.

Till Vere-Hodge, Partner at Payne Hicks Beach, said:

“Payne Hicks Beach has an excellent reputation for its private client work and for valuing its clients, many of whom have long-standing relationships with the law firm. I am delighted to be joining Payne Hicks Beach and look forward to adding my experience to an already strong and established team.”

Robert Brodrick, Chairman of Payne Hicks Beach, commented:

“Till will be a great asset to Payne Hicks Beach where we pride ourselves on the fact that we support our clients in all aspects of their lives. The ability to add his experience of art and cultural property to the many other legal services we provide will enhance the offering that are able to provide our clients. Till adds an extra string to our bow. We welcome him to the team.”
