Visual Arts Law


Schroder Brooks, PLC is ready to assist artists with their legal concerns. Whether it’s negotiating gallery contracts, protecting your original work of art, or negotiating a work for hire agreement, we can help.

Our members include a past adjunct professor at Virginia Commonwealth University’s Graduate School of Arts, a past chairman of the Virginia State Bar’s Lawyers for the Arts Committee, and an honoree of the Washington Area Lawyers for the Arts.

Our members have been involved with several non-profit arts law organizations in San Francisco and Los Angeles and have been cited by the U.S. Supreme Court in connection with published work regarding copyright law in the arts. Another member of the Firm developed the “Coffee with an Art Lawyer” program, which allows artists the opportunity to meet with a lawyer in a local coffee shop and receive pro-bono legal advice.
