Eager to actively contribute to the arts and drawing on its experience in art law and live performance law, Rivedroit has established a skills-based patronage policy aimed at leading cultural institutions.

Practically speaking, this means Rivedroit contributes to its clients’ cultural events by handling their ensuing legal issues.

As a result, in 2011 and 2012 Rivedroit assisted the Orchestre de Paris in various areas, tackling live performance-specific issues.

Throughout 2013 and 2014, Rivedroit advised the Pompidou-Metz Centre in the lead-up to its Paparazzis exhibition. The firm assisted the Pompidou-Metz Centre in choosing the photographs to be exhibited based on legal issues related to image rights and privacy infringement. The firm’s study entitled « Photography, privacy and the law » was published in the exhibition’s catalogue.

In 2015, the firm lent its legal expertise to the Musée du Quai Branly, a prestigious cultural institution famed for the quality of its exhibitions and collections, whose reputation knows no borders.

In addition, the firm decided to commit to a long-standing partnership with the Les Rencontres de la Photographie à Arles festival, which it will be supporting for the third consecutive year in 2017.

Alongside these commitments, the firm supports artists in all disciplines, from the visual arts to music and beyond.

The firm’s partners would like to take this opportunity to thank Marouan Benabdallah for his performance of Claude Debussy’s Poissons d’Or, Images, Series II.
