The specialized international expertise required to return and protect your artistic, cultural, and intellectual property.
Art, heritage and intellectual property protection and repatriation
Stacey assists clients with understanding the different laws, policies and procedures governing the return of illicitly acquired art and cultural material, including assisting Indigenous clients with negotiating up-to-date treaty chapters relating to Culture and Heritage to facilitate repatriation.
She also assists clients with registering official marks, trademarks and industrial designs, and ensuring the protection of cultural and intellectual property rights in project-related and other commercial agreements.
Stacey's research and teaching at Stanford University have contributed to her broad understanding of issues arising in repatriation/restitution matters and the development of a specific process based on Relationship Building for resolving Indigenous cultural heritage disputes.
