David's research into the nexus between legal and socioeconomic features of business firms lies at the intersections of company law, corporate governance, law and economics, and institutional theory. He has been particularly interested in the corporate personality controversy, and is currently working on a book project entitled The Nexus and the Mask: A Legal-Economic Theory of the Firm (Edward Elgar). In parallel, David is exploring extensions of the Ostroms' notions of commons and polycentric governance to corporations and other organisational forms. A co-edited volume on Governing Corporate Knowledge Commons (Cambridge University Press) is in the works. David is also working on the history of the law and economics movement, with a specific focus on how Henry Manne's entrepreneurial efforts helped spread and legitimise economic reasoning in American legal education.
