Career overview

Previously worked at the College of Law (now University of Law), assuming roles related to LPC course design.

Research areas

The focus of my research is company and insolvency law. I am currently finishing an article which considers the employment status of directors in small companies and the corresponding benefits which those directors can be entitled to as a result. I promulgate an argument that those entitlements are perhaps unjustified.
I have previously considered in an article the status of landlords in the insolvency of corporate tenants.
