Capital Market and Public M&A

The main function of the capital market is to improve the efficiency of transactions by providing a marketplace where companies and investors can meet, for example in connection with IPOs or share issues. The capital market is strictly regulated in order to protect investors. Moll Wendén offers advice on securities market law to listed companies, shareholders and other parties involved in the securities market.
