Quondam Fellow since 2016
I work mainly on English and German private law with a strong comparative and historical focus. This includes especially the law of contract, tort law, the law of trusts, property law, and the law of succession, and it extends to adjoining areas of commercial and company law. I also have an interest in aspects of tax law and in the principles governing the conflict of laws.
