Olivier Eloot obtained a Master in History in 2009 and a Master in Law in 2013, both with great distinction from Ghent University.
He worked for seven years at the Ghent Faculty of Law as a research assistant. His research focused on private financial law, more specifically the private law operation of the MiFID code of conduct. This research took place at the intersection of contract law, financial law and European law. Over the years, he built up a profound knowledge of these matters and wrote a number of authoritative articles. He is still attached to this faculty as a voluntary employee. In his years at Ghent University, Olivier discovered a passion for education. That is why he has been working at the University of Antwerp since 2020 as a part-time assistant in Legal Argumentation Theory.
In April 2021, he joined Bannister’s contract and economic law team where he puts his extensive knowledge of this matter into practice.
