Commercial Law

About us

As a group of scholars, we work individually and collaboratively on projects across commercial law, as it applies in a national and transnational context.

This includes trade law, EU law, competition, banking and insurance law, financial crime and regulation, company law, consumer protection, services of general interest, investment law, internet, broadcasting and digital regulation, contract and tort law.

In our work on these topics we strive to develop efficient trade mechanisms, as well as effective competition, corporate governance and financial market management. Other aspects of our work seeks to balance various commercial interests with protecting the environment and preserving human, social and economic rights, such as dignity, privacy, freedom of expression and association, access to services of general interest, consumer protection and safe food.

We are committed to improving the practice and development of commercial law locally, nationally and internationally. In our research, teaching and our work with law-makers, businesses and individuals affected by law, our philosophy is that commercial law can only be understood, improved and made to work by rigorous doctrinal analysis, learning from other countries and other academic disciplines, and providing practical legal solutions.
