We put our clients in the driving seat, literally.

Classic cars, super cars and high value cars are a passion, a desire and sometimes even an investment. As prices rise and fall so does the potential for disputes. Is the history genuine? Who is the true owner? What does ‘fully restored’ actually mean?

Whether you’re purchasing your first classic, or super, or adding to your collection, we offer insightful commercial advice on purchasing and restoration. And when it’s time to sell, we’ll help optimise the outcome and minimise the risk.

As classic car owners as well as lawyers, we know from first-hand experience the potential emotional and financial hazards that you may need to navigate. Involve us early on when you’re planning to purchase or hand your classic car over to a restorer so and we can help steer around problems and ensure that the right protection is in place so you can enjoy your car with complete peace of mind.

As well as supporting individuals with their cars, we also advise classic and high-value car dealers, collectors and restorers through their various legal matters. (Just have a look at our recent case studies at the bottom of this page).
