Market regulation & Stock exchange transactions

We provide legal assistance to publicly listed companies, their majority or minority shareholders as well as their senior management teams on market regulation issues and transactions, including compliance with mandatory listing rules, corporate governance and best practices rules.

We have particular experience with:

  • Compliance and implementation of market information obligations;
  • Assistance in connection with listing and delisting processes, purchasing or selling of equity in listed companies, or obtaining derogations from the French financial markets’ authority (AMF) in order to avoid the compulsory launching of public offerings;
  • Assistance in connection with white collar crime (such as dissemination of false information, insider trading and market manipulation), AMF investigations and appearance before the AMF sanctions committee;
  • Assistance regarding the improvement of the decision-making process of corporate management bodies and in the implementation of corporate governance rules (in particular through advisory committees, rules of procedure, codes of conduct and business ethics).
