Career overview

Previously worked at the College of Law (now University of Law), assuming roles related to LPC course design.
Worked as a solicitor in Manchester for two commercial firms.

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.
