Our collector car solicitors have the expertise and knowledge to deal with range of issues that affect the acquisition and management of classic and collector cars.
Over the last decade certain members of the firm have acquired specialist expertise in the law and practices relating to the increasingly valuable collectors’ car market.
Consequently, we have decided to establish a dedicated team of solicitors and support staff, who are not only experienced in their own specific legal disciplines, but also have a life-long enthusiasm and knowledgeable expertise of almost every aspect of car ownership. In short: “We Speak Motors”.
The Healys Collector Car Solicitors Group can provide all of the services expected of lawyers, including commercial law aspects of acquisition such as title and contracts, estate and inheritance tax planning and litigation and mediation in the event of dispute.
More importantly, we have come to understand that issues relating to motors can often be resolved efficiently by looking beyond the strict confines of the legal world. Classic car ownership involves matters where other specialists play an important part, and in many cases they can facilitate pragmatic and financially sound outcomes.
As a result, over the years we have set up strong and effective working relationships with a variety of local and international specialists, including accountants, auctioneers and insurers, amongst others, with the best applicable expertise tailored to the matters in hand. In this way we have all but instant access, both formally and informally, to the right people.
This practice has recently developed into a distinguishable branch of the law accelerated in part by the extraordinary growth in value of classic, collector and race cars. Obvious legal solutions are not always readily identifiable and case law remains sparse, but we have found that solutions to problems are frequently achieved by taking a collaborative rather than contentious approach.
This comes from many years of experience representing clients in similar situations.

‘Funded Female Founders’ provides an honest and eye-opening insight into the challenges faced by female entrepreneurs when raising capital.
