The second edition of Market Abuse Regulation offers a detailed analysis of the market abuse regime and the application of the regulations in the UK and EU. The work is of great value to financial services lawyers and companies who need a succinct, comprehensive and up to date analysis of theregime and the implications for their businesses. Consideration is given to the implementation and interpretation of the regulations, the conduct of investigations, the defences and appeals available against a finding of market abuse, and overlapping US regulation. Since the implementation of the EU Market Abuse Directive in the UK dates only from 2005, detailed consideration is given to the important enforcement policy decisions and market abuse cases which have been recently decided by the FSA and referred to the Financial Services Markets Tribunal. Inparticular, the new edition examines the modifications to enforcement procedures by the FSA, the move towards a more 'principles-based' approach to enforcement and the increased focus on senior management liability.
Edward J Swan qualified as a New York lawyer in 1976 and is Counsel, Financial Services, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher and Flom LLP and Affiliates. He specialises in commodities, derivatives and financial services regulation and is a member of various ISDA Committees. John Virgo is Barrister at Guildhall Chambers, Bristol.

Editorial Reviews

Review from previous edition: "An impressive and useful handbook to the law and practice of market abuse. Chapters 1 and 2 set the scene and draw together in an organized form the background points that are difficult to find anywhere else. What I like about the rest of the book is the clearand careful structure that makes the statutory code more accessible and understandable and creates a well-ordered and intelligible framework." --Stephen Oliver QC, President of the Financial Services and Markets Tribunal
