The day has finally arrived. My new article is out in the Journal of Business Law:
Derek Whayman, ‘Remodelling Knowing Receipt as a Gains-Based Wrong’  JBL 565
It is syndicated on Westlaw – log in using your usual account then click here.
This article analyses the nature of knowing receipt. It finds its previous characterisations as a form of unjust enrichment or trustee-like liability wanting in the face of newer authority and complex commercial situations. It argues that knowing receipt is a gains-based profit-disgorging wrong and this best describes its remedies.
