Career Development Fellow
Dr Rafal Zakrzewski's research focuses on finance law and commercial remedies (jointly and severally). He is particularly concerned with all aspects of English law relating to corporate lending and security, especially in an international or cross-border context. More broadly, he expresses an interest in most matters of legal principle closely connected with private practice.
Rafal teaches principally in the areas of contract, torts, trusts and corporate finance.
He first studied law at the University of Queensland. He pursued his doctoral studies at Oxford University. His doctorate examined the concept of a legal remedy in private law. It was subsequently published as 'Remedies Reclassified' (OUP, Oxford, 2005). He has also written on the rescission of contracts, acquisition finance, and aspects of commercial and corporate law.
As a solicitor he practised law for many years with leading global firms in Australia, London and Warsaw. He is a veteran of a good many financings, joint ventures and acquisitions. He also has some experience in legislative drafting.
