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

Publication from Leeds Conference

Back in late 2010 I attended a conference at Leeds University on directors' duties and shareholder litigation in wake of the financial crisis (see here for blog post).

At the event I asked a couple of questions on derivative claims and whether the new claim under the Companies Act 2006 had potentially achieved its aim of benefiting small private companies and one on regulatory competition in regards to Prof. Armour's paper on Delaware losing its cases.

These questions and the relevant answers from the panel will now form part of a chapter in an edited collection by Edward Elgar. I will keep posted on the developments but do not predict any release until late in the year or early next year; but a bit of good news none the less.
