Rebecca Foden of Boodle Hatfield LLP will discuss the issues of authenticity and the pitfalls that arise when an auction house’s due diligence is called into question. Boodle Hatfield LLP represented Mr Thwaytes in the most high profile litigation of 2014 and which was of great importance in the field of art litigation/professional negligence. The judgement reflects the development in this area of law and the standard of care owed by a leading auction house to its consignors.
