The recently published Handbook "Capital Market Compliance" discusses all material areas of compliance on the capital market on 1,200 pages and in 33 chapters and provides implementation strategies for the practice. Publishers of the reference book are Dr. André-M. Szesny, LL.M. and Dr. Thorsten Kuthe, both partners at commercial law firm Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek.
36 renowned authors, all experts from science, capital market supervisory agencies, credit institutions, listed enterprises, management consultancy agencies, leading law firms and auditing companies, discuss among others the following topics:
• Issuer compliance
• Transaction-related compliance
• Banking law details
• Financial services provider compliance
• Criminal capital market compliance
• Uncovering past violations
Persons in charge of compliance in capital market-oriented companies are facing ever-larger challenges by the strict and constantly increasing regulation of the capital market. The Handbook explains capital market law in understandable and practice-friendly manner and offers assistance in setting up an effective corporate compliance system. The structure is based on the addressees: issuers, banks and financial services providers. Access to relevant real-life topics is provided. The authors show the close link between material capital market law and criminal law. Nearly all requirements or prohibitions in capital market laws are punishable by fine or monetary penalties and even imprisonment. The capital market aspects under criminal law and on monetary penalties are therefore explained in a separate part in comprehensive and concluding manner. The Handbook thus connects capital market compliance with criminal compliance.
