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

Forthcoming Publication in ICCLR

I blogged a couple of months ago that my submission to the International Company and Commercial Law Review had been accepted. See here. The publication on the court's power to order shareholder meetings under the s306 of the Companies Act 2006 is due out in January's edition of the Journal and will soon be available to view.

If you cannot wait that long... here are some of my early thoughts on the idea that I blogged about back in August. Demonstrating one of the benefits of a blog as a good way to express and record ideas.
