Darius Bugailiskis

F Darius Bugailiskis

Darius Bugailiskis joined the faculty in September 2011 as a MPhil/PhD Candidate, conducting research under the supervision of Prof. Robert Stevens and Dr. Arad Reisberg.

Darius’ research concentrates on comparative legal aspects of control in corporate insolvency and rehabilitation situations. He analyses whether the existing English and Lithuanian law ensures the optimal balance between the adequate control mechanisms used as against office holders and the rules preventing the potential abuse of rights (control power) by secured creditors. The main aim of the research is to identify whether the existing legal rules are adequate to achieve the current policy goals that underlie the respective insolvency legislation, as well as to contribute to the creation of a conceptual way forward for the potential reform of the legal rules in the analysed area.

Darius holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Law (2004) and a Master’s Degree in International Law (2007) from Mykolas Romeris University, Vilnius, Lithuania, and also an LL.M in Banking and Financial Regulation (distinction) from UCL (2009).

Prior to joining the faculty as a researcher, Darius has worked as an in-house legal counsel for more than 5 years at an international audit, tax and business consulting firm and a major Northern European bank, specialising mainly in corporate, commercial and financial law. He has also taught private international law from Feb 2007 to Sept 2008 at the Faculty of Law, Mykolas Romeris University, in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Research Interests

Darius’ main research interests lie in the field of financial and corporate insolvency law, including: general corporate finance law, comparative secured transactions, corporate governance, and insolvency law theories.  Further research interests include: regulatory theories, economic analysis of law and private international law.
