Since its introduction, the EU’s market abuse regulation (“MAR”) has meant major changes for the players in the financial industry. The risk of high penalty fees has led to questions connected to MAR and market abuse becoming a constantly hot topic.

MAR contains extensive rules on the prohibition of market abuse – which includes prohibitions on insider trading, market manipulation and illegal disclosure of insider information. MAR also contains requirements for special handling of insider information, logbooking of deferred publication of insider information and transparency reporting.

MCL has also created the digital log book – MCLogg – as the range of digital log books did not meet the requirements we set. MCLogg has grown into a leading player in its market segment and, in addition to logging insiders, also offers services for listing company senior executives. In order to further ensure a high level of knowledge about MAR at our client companies, MCL’s lawyers offer training in the regulations that is completely adapted to your wishes and needs.

MCL has a team of specialists with high competence regarding how MAR should be interpreted and what preparatory and ongoing measures are required for investors, listed companies and other actors in the financial industry to be able to fulfill all requirements and avoid noticeable sanctions. With MCL’s help and advice, you can feel confident that you are making the right decisions and managing the risks that MAR entails.
