PhD Title: Reconsidering the role of the derivative claim as a mechanism of protecting shareholders in England. A comparative study with the United States and New Zealand.
Supervisors: Professor Christopher Ryan and Dr Grietje Baars
Neshat started her PhD on February 2013. Her research is focusing on the role of the derivative claim in England and on evaluating if the role of the derivative claim as a mechanism of protecting shareholders needs to be reconsidered in the English legal system.
Neshat's thesis is in the field of comparative company law and involves a comparative study between the law governing the derivative claim in England with that operating within the United States and New Zealand. She explores the reasons for unpopularity of derivative claims in England and examines whether the United States and New Zealand approaches toward the role of the derivative claim would be appropriate and advisable in the English legal system.
