Prof. Van der Rest serves on various international editorial boards, and his work is published in leading scholarly books and international journals. He has chaired accreditations and had been an external examiner, external advisor and a visiting professor for various international business schools. He has taught in Bachelor, Master, MBA, and Executive Education programs. Recipient of research grants and awards, Prof. Van der Rest has recently become interested in research on the effectiveness of the protection of consumers against company pricing behavior, for example:

In addition, Prof. Van der Rest for some time has been involved in empirical legal research in the context of insolvency law - in particular 'informal reorganization' – to advance knowledge about insolvency law, 'mediation and conflict management' and 'turnaround management ". This research line seeks answers to questions such as why companies go bankrupt, how this can be prevented and what the role of (insolvency) law is in this. The research focuses on three scientific challenges: (1) deepening the theoretical framework based on insights from the social sciences in order to better analyze behavioral assumptions underlying (private) law in order to improve insolvency issues (in SMEs) learn to understand, explain or predict; (2) improving the methodological approach adopted in the research field; and (3) shifting the current dominant focus on restructuring and cost issues when studying SMEs in financial difficulties to more focus on issues surrounding value creation (strategy and marketing) and revenue generation (i.e., capitalizing on customer value), inter alia in the light of insights into the 'rescue culture'.
