Dr Dionysia Katelouzou is a Lecturer in Corporate Law at The Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London. Dr Katelouzou holds a Ph.D. and an LL.M. (I class) from the University of Cambridge, while she received her LL.B. (summa cum laude) from the University of Athens. Dr Katelouzou is a member of the Bar of Athens. She is also a Research Associate at the Centre of Business Research at the University of Cambridge.
Dr Katelouzou's research focuses on corporate law, corporate governance, law and finance, and securities regulation, generally using an interdisciplinary approach. One strand of her research deals with shareholder activism, especially the style activist hedge funds engage in, and its interplays with corporate law in a comparative and transnational legal context. In other projects, she analyses the development of shareholder protection using leximetric (quantitative) approaches and the evolution of shareholder duties. She is also studying the emerging notion of shareholder stewardship and the hardening of soft law corporate governance norms at a domestic, EU and global level.
