Research Interests

Laura’s main research interests are in law and economics, especially regarding international and European corporate and commercial law. She is currently working on a PhD entitled ‘Suitability of EU capital maintenance rules over creditor protection’. Specifically, the principal aim of her research is to examine whether the EU legal framework requiring a minimum capital maintenance (2nd Directive on Company Law) addresses the issues raised by law and economics literature; and, in particular, to what extent it guarantees the protection of creditor rights. Her research will examine a representative sample of cases where the courts dealt with this issue in two different EU jurisdictions, in order to assess the implementation in practice of these rules from a multidisciplinary law and economics perspective.
