Legal

Our Legal Expert Group ensures that new and revised regulations that affect small and mid-size quoted companies are proportionate and appropriate for the sector.

The group is currently working on:

  • Campaigning for a proportionate approach to regulating small and mid-size quoted companies in the review of a number of European financial services directives, including Market in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) II and the Market Abuse Regulation.
  • Exploring various UK and European government initiatives to kick-start growth for small and mid-size quoted companies and how to improve them.
