Till Vere-Hodge is a solicitor and a member of the Firm’s Art and Cultural Property Law and Competition Law groups. He is based in our London office. His practice includes all aspects of Art and Cultural Property Law.
Till regularly works with 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. One particular focus of his practice has been the handling of restitution claims to artworks looted before, during and after World War II. In that context, Till has collaborated with current possessors and owners of “red-flag” artworks, claimants and heirs to such artworks, provenance researchers and various other stakeholders. He has also assisted clients with the management of media relations during such sensitive periods of time. He is regularly called upon to lecture or present on various Art Law issues, for example at Sotheby’s Institute in London, the Federal Bar Council in New York, the New College of the Humanities and the ARCA Art Crime Conference in Italy.
Before joining Constantine Cannon, Till worked as an Associate for three years at the London office of a New York-headquartered international law firm. Prior to his career in the law, he worked for several 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 read History, Politics and Economics at Cardiff University and holds a Masters Degree in International Relations from Bristol University. He is a member of PAIAM and a Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland. Till is fluent in German.
