Their services

BHL Art Group will provide you with professional advice and guide you expertly through the art world.



We provide valuations for estate planning, tax, insurance, and sale.



We will provide independent sale advice, negotiation and management for a single painting, work of art or a group.  After assessing the sale options with you, we will negotiate the financial, marketing and promotional terms of the contract. We will oversee and carefully manage every aspect of any transaction.


Estate and Heritage Planning

We combine legal and tax expertise with our considerable experience of the international art market.  We will help you plan the evolution of your collection through the generations, anticipating tax events and accessing heritage tax incentives where appropriate. We have established relationships with government and heritage agencies and institutions to enable us to deliver creative planning for your art.  We offer expert support to professional advisors, trustees and executors in navigating the tax regulations relating to your situation, delivering thoughtful and efficient strategies.

The Circle Square offer

We would be delighted to meet any Circle Square member who wishes to discuss an art related matter, and to provide you with a set of options and solutions for your requirements.
