Erasmus School of Law

Prof. Maarten Verbrugh has been appointed professor of corporate law at the Chair in European and comparative corporate law (0.2 FTE) within the Commercial, Corporate and Financial Law section with effect from 1 September 2018.

Prof. Verbrugh's field of research focuses on commercial law and corporate law in a broad sense.

The chair of Prof. Verbrugh is in keeping with the profile of Erasmus School of Law very well. The aspect of European law and comparative law form an essential link between other chairs within and outside his section, in the fields of economics and law, private law, employment law and tax law. Prof. Verbrugh will also seek cooperation with representatives of other disciplines within other faculties. He will participate in the social debate about companies and the financial world and thus contribute to the further internationalization of the faculty.
