Larry has represented foreign governments, victims of the Holocaust, families of renowned artists and other claimants in the recovery of art and antiquities. Larry also advises and represents foreign governments in matters related to cultural property and, in that regard, among other things, served as legal adviser to the Republic of Turkey’s delegation to the diplomatic conference where the UNIDROIT Convention on Stolen or Illegally Exported Cultural Objects was adopted. He has written and lectured extensively on mediation and arbitration of art law disputes.

Howard N Spiegler, Kaye Spiegler PLLC

Howard N Spiegler has been involved in several of the best-known and most important litigations brought on behalf of foreign governments and heirs of Holocaust victims and others to recover stolen artwork or other cultural property, including: representing the Estate of Lea Bondi Jaray to recover a Schiele painting confiscated by a Nazi agent in Austria in the late 1930s, which settled for the full value of the painting; the recovery by the heir of the famous Jewish art dealer Jacques Goudstikker of 200 Nazi-looted artworks from the Dutch government; the recovery by the heirs of Kazimir Malevich, the world-renowned twentieth-century Russian artist, of five important and valuable Malevich paintings, one of which later sold at auction for US$60 million; and recoveries of numerous valuable antiquities on behalf of Turkey. Howard also handles all types of art transactions.

He has published widely on art law and related issues and has had numerous speaking engagements at various universities and law schools throughout the country, including Columbia, Harvard, New York University and Yale, and throughout the world for the International Association of Lawyers and other organisations and bar associations, art fairs, museums, auction houses and appraisers. His work has been widely recognised by legal and other professional organisations, including a Band 1 ranking in Chambers High Net Worth for art and cultural property law in the United States. Howard co-founded Kaye Spiegler, along with managing member Lawrence Kaye, to provide the highest level of service to clients in the art market in matters involving complex art litigation, dispute resolution, notable restitution issues and general commercial art law.
