Professor Michael Anderson Schilligl joined King’s College London in 2007. His research and teaching generally focuses on Financial Law from both a regulatory and transactional perspective, as well as on Corporate Law, Corporate Insolvency Law and European Contract Law. In his book on Resolution and Insolvency of Banks and Financial Institutions (Oxford University Press, 2016) Michael comprehensively analyses the newly established bank resolution frameworks in Europe and the US. His most recent book on Comparative Company Law (Oxford University Press, 2019) addresses important issues in Corporate Law and Capital Markets Regulation from a comparative perspective. Michael’s current research interests concern the transformation of financial law on the basis of disruptive technologies, notably DLT and Blockchain. As a British Academy Mid-Career Fellow, Michael has embarked on a new and fully funded research project on the ’Too-Big-To-Fail problem and the Blockchain solution.’
