To all those reading this I am David Gibbs; I am a Lecturer in Law at the University of East Anglia.

I created this blog as a general out-let of ideas for my research, as well as keeping those interested up-to-date on my research and general interests.

I completed my PhD thesis at the University of East Anglia in 2014. The thesis was recommended for the award of PhD with no corrections. My external examiner was Prof. Simon Deakin (Cambridge) and internal examiner was Prof. Morten Hviid.
My PhD research centred on directors' duties and company law. The thesis was titled 'Non-Executive Self-Interest: Fiduciary Duties and Corporate Governance'. It was a doctrinal and empirical study on whether self-interest was suitably controlled amongst non-executive directors.

My supervisors were Prof. Mathias Siems, Prof. Duncan Sheehan, Dr. Sara Connolly and Dr. Rob Heywood

Article Publication Released

The Company Lawyer have published part one of my article on the 'Statutory Derivative Claim' and is available online from the normal legal databases.

Citation is (2011) 32(2) Company Lawyer 41

Part 2 is in the pipeline for next month as I am just going through the final proofs.

Since I have returned to work after the festive break I have focused my attentions on completing my first chapter and looking at the arguments for an individual no-profit rule for directors. Watch this space for a blog update on the topic!
