Mathew Hoffman Quoted in Maine Antique Digest

In the Maine Antique Digest article “Financial Troubles of Broker/Consultant Create Avalanche of Legal Action,” Barton LLP litigator Mathew Hoffman was quoted regarding his representation of various art purchasers and lenders who used art as collateral. The article outlines how the financial troubles of Timothy Sammons and his dissolved firm Timothy Sammons, Inc. have resulted in disputed claims over artwork .


Mathew Hoffman stated, “If you look at the allegations of the complaints, it appears to be various people who consigned their artwork to Mr. Sammons and he sold it, or disposed of it, and he didn’t pay them…That doesn’t mean that my client, or the purchasers of the artwork, were not buyers in good faith. They were.”
