Leila A. Amineddoleh is an expert in the field of art and cultural heritage law. She handles high-profile art and antiquities disputes, and she represents major art collectors, museums, galleries, dealers, non-profit organizations, artists, estates, foundations and foreign governments. She has been involved in matters related to multi-million dollar contractual disputes, international cultural heritage law violations, the recovery of stolen art and antiquities, complex fraud schemes, authentication disputes, art-backed loans, and the purchase and sale of hundreds of millions of dollars of art and collectibles.

She also advises clients on the acquisition and sale of fine arts and cultural heritage, and works with artists and entrepreneurs to protect their works and artistic rights and to develop intellectual property portfolios.

Leila regularly lectures on a variety of art law topics, and she teaches International Art & Cultural Heritage Law at Fordham University School of Law, in addition to Art Crime and the Law at New York University.
