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, EU and UK competition law and trade regulatory 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.

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 read History, Politics and Economics at Cardiff University and holds a Masters Degree in International Relations from Bristol University. He is a Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland. Till is fluent in German.
