Research interests

My primary research areas are corporate law and takeover regulation, including the harmonisation of company law on the European level, as well as law and finance. Recent projects include articles on the relationship between shareholder empowerment and bank bailouts, on the liability of board members across the EU, and on the mandatory bid rule. Currently, I am working on an empirical research project exploring the impact of shareholder rights on firm performance and on a monograph on the regulation of mergers and acquisitions in Europe.
