Art Loss Register general counsel Christopher A. Marinello has left the company to start a rival business called Art Recovery International.

Based in London, the new company will focus on stolen, lost and looted art, similar to Art Loss Register. Art recovery and title disputes are the primary focus. Provenance research and due diligence on artworks will also be services offered by a team of professionals assembled by Marinello.

Marinello said in a statement, "We are also working with a number of developers to build what will be the most comprehensive central database of stolen and looted artwork, title disputes, fakes and forgeries, and works that may be subject to financial security interests."
