Sarah Paterson
Associate Professor of Law, London School of Economics and Political Science 

Sarah Paterson is an Associate Professor of Law at the London School of Economics and Political Science where she teaches and researches corporate insolvency and restructuring law.

Before joining the LSE, Sarah was a partner in the Restructuring and Insolvency Group of Slaughter and May, with whom she retains a senior consultancy.

She has written widely on the topic of corporate bankruptcy and debt restructuring, including on bargaining in the shadow of restructuring law, the implications of increasing access to the US high yield market by UK issuers for debt restructuring, the implications of changes in the finance market in the UK and the US for debt restructuring theory and how fairness is assessed in large, small and finance company restructurings in both jurisdictions.

She also co-authors the comparative US and UK corporate section of Debt Restructuring, published by OUP, with Alan Kornberg and edits McKnight, Paterson and Zakrzewski on the Law of International Finance (also published by OUP) with Rafal Zakrzewski.  Recent work focuses on the ways in which the evolution of secured transactions law in the UK and the US has influenced distributional priority in corporate bankruptcy and restructuring.

Sarah is a member of the Council of the Insolvency Lawyers’ Association, the technical committee of the Insolvency Lawyers’ Association, Chair of the Insolvency Lawyers’ Association Insolvency & Restructuring Scholarship Committee and a member of the General Technical Committee of R3.
