Welcome!

To all those reading this I am David Gibbs; I am a Lecturer in Company and Commercial Law at the University of Hertfordshire.

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

UEA's 3rd Annual Research Colloquium


Next Thursday I shall be presenting my work at UEA's research colloquium. A schedule of presentations can be found here.

I am to give an overview of my research highlighting key points relating to:

- existing literature
- elements of originality
- empirical aspects.

Last year's events where particularly interesting where I presented early findings of my papers on derivative claims. The day finished with a delightful meal at a tapas resteraunt.
