Un-Titled: The Case for Creating an International Title Registry for Art
Blank Rome LLP
1271 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY
Blank Rome partner Stephen D. Brodie will serve as a speaker for two session at “Un-Titled: The Case for Creating an International Title Registry for Art,” a program being presented by the Art Loss Register, Athena Art Finance, Blank Rome, and Columbia Law School on Wednesday, September 6, 2023, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., at Blank Rome’s New York City office.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Art is increasingly used as loan collateral and an investment asset. Without universal adoption of interest registration standards, title and ownership remain paramount concerns. Symposium speakers including fine art banks and lenders, auction houses, insurers, gallerists, appraisers, and lawyers, will debate the case for a global art registry.
Steve will speak during the 10:00 session, “Existing Partial Solutions,” in a segment called “UCC: Its Use, Legal Effect, and Limitations—Is There a Better Model?” The second segment in that session, “The Private Sector—Art Loss Register—and Public-Private International Partnerships,” will be presented by James Ratcliffe (General Counsel, The Art Loss Register).
Steve will join Cathy Kaplan (Columbia Law School) at 4:00 p.m. for his second session, “Securitisation of Art: Lessons from the Financial Markets and Avoidance of Pitfalls.”
Other sessions include:
- Scandals and Losses: Standards, Prevention, and Culture
