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 amongst life as a 1st year academic I have managed to find a slither of time for a case comment on the Court of Appeal decision in Chandler v Cape plc [2012] EWCA Civ 525.

It is due out in January and will be published by the International Company and Commercial Law Review. The thurst of the article (spoiler alert) is to highlight that whilst the decision may be interesting and hold practical significance, it does not alter the legal landscape as it was based on a pre-existing concept of assumption of responsibility.
