Profile

Biography

Dr ZOURIDAKIS GEORGIOS My research centres on commercial law, company law, EU company law, comparative law and comparative law methodology. My academic background covers the fields of comparative law, company law, corporate governance, CSR, environmental law and EU law. I obtained my doctorate on the subject of comparative corporate law and specifically the comparative study of Greek, English and German law; focusing on shareholder protection and the effects shareholder activism has on corporate governance. I have been a research fellow in the Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) since 2017. I am also a Greek lawyer, member of the Athens Bar Association (Court of Appeal level), having practised mainly on civil and commercial law cases.
