We at Ewbank Auctions were delighted with Corinth Consulting. After a free initial consultation, we signed up and were able to leave all the work to Rena and her expert team. There is no time to lose because AML is mandatory and on current timetables must be set up by June 2021.

Rena’s great skill is not only to make compliance understandable but also to introduce working practices that are effective, both for the organization and the for the regulatory authorities. In short, Rena gets it done, whilst protecting and enhancing business prospects.

Paula has been a true asset to the team during the implementation of the 5th European Anti-Money Laundering Directive. She was excellent in managing projects as well as engaging with internal and external parties. Paula is a very inquisitive and collaborative person and I enjoyed working with her enormously

I have known Rena Neville since the time we were both in private practice in New York, following which she flourished in her multi-faceted roles at Sotheby’s, most notably overseeing its engagement with the range of complex regulatory and other compliance issues that arise in the international art market. And as Chairman successively of two major artist foundations, I continue to have a deep awareness of the operations of that market. Throughout, I have known Rena to be an astute and strategic thinker, holding to the highest ethical standards and likewise commanding great respect in her profession.
Michael Straus, ChairmanRobert Rauschenberg Foundation
Having been in the art market for most of her career first as a lawyer, then as compliance director and later in business development, Rena brings a comprehensive understanding of the market and helpful insights on how to address the challenges inherent in art market regulation and compliance.

Having known Rena for many years, she has broad, international experience of the complex legal issues facing dealers and specifically, the complexities and risks involved in implementing a compliance program. In my experience, she is not only qualified to help set up AML Compliance, but is easy to work with.
Jonathan GreenRichard Green
I have worked with Rena Neville over many years and I have always been impressed by her extensive practical knowledge of the art market and its legal and regulatory framework.
Anthony Brown, ChairmanBritish Art Market Federation
Rena Neville was a key figure within the firm during my time as a non executive Director and Deputy Chairman of Sotheby’s [1994-2019]. She was completely reliable and a pleasure to work with. For me as a layman in the arcane but crucial world of money laundering compliance, she had the unusual ability to make a complicated issue simple, but without removing the essential nuances. Based on my knowledge of Rena Neville I would be very happy to seek her professional advice.
