Announcement: August 2019: The American Lawyer Names Maaren Shah and Luke Nikas “Litigators of the Week”

Firm News

Maaren Shah and Luke Nikas were named “Litigators of the Week” by The American Lawyer for two important back-to-back wins in the art world. In one case in which they represented The Andy Warhol Foundation For The Visual Arts, Inc., which resulted in a victory that established a standard for the fair use of existing images in new artistic creations that will protect Warhol’s entire body of work as well as other works in the canon of modern and contemporary art from claims of copyright infringement. Nikas and Shah were also recognized for winning dismissal of claims against Morgan Art Foundation in a heated battle with the estate of Robert Indiana—famous for his “LOVE” sculpture and image that once adorned a postage stamp — concerning rights to Indiana’s works and legacy.
