Bruno Boesch spent his first fifteen years of practice on corporate transactions and finance. He then acted as counsel and arbitrator in a wide range of international commercial and investment disputes, alongside a growing wealth management and estate planning practice, with a strong component of fine art and other cultural property matters.

He has been ranked steadily as a leader in the above fields.

Bruno Boesch has resigned from the partnership, staying of counsel to the firm, focusing on a handful of private clients and their families, their art collections and philanthropic ventures, while also exploring, speaking and writing about selected art world issues.

He is the editor of The Art Collecting Legal Handbook, (2nd edition, 2016, Thomson Reuters). He is also the author of a novel, Le Cardinal Epinglé, published in 1998, under the nom de plume, Paul Gorgon.
