Pool of Arbitrators

Natalia Mikolajczyk

Managing Associate, Linklaters

Natalia is an internationally trained and New York qualified lawyer based in Warsaw. Although in her career she currently focuses on large infrastructural projects, she remains committed to her passion for art law.

Prior to moving to Warsaw, Natalia was for several years an art and arbitration lawyer in London. She advised clients (advising art collectors, artists, galleries and online auction houses) in matters related to the international art market, including non-contentious issues (the sale, purchase, commissioning of art, and artist representation agreements, import and export taxation, corporate structures for new art ventures, EU consumer protection regulations) and contentious issues, such as art provenance and ownership disputes with cross-border elements and IP disputes. As an arbitration lawyer, she acted as counsel in international and investment arbitration disputes as well as served as a secretary to arbitral tribunals.

She occasionally continues to advise private collectors in bespoke art law matters and stays up to speed with the developments in the London, New York and Paris art markets.

Natalia’s educational background includes a Master’s degree from the University of Warsaw (European Law) and an LL.M. degree from the University of California, Berkeley, where she obtained certificates in Intellectual Property and International Law, including an art law paper on the online museum content from the U.S. and European Perspective. She is fluent in Polish, English and French.
