Research interests

Gillis’s research interests include commercial law, company law and insolvency law. The topic of his doctoral thesis is the regulation of voidable transactions (also known as the actio pauliana) in legal entities. The research project aims to design an elaborated Belgian legal framework in relation to voidable transactions, as a necessary complement to an increasingly deregulated company law.
