The Nasdaq legal department is working to assist in the internal country-specific implementation and is a contributor to EU affairs. Through our Brussels office we have been involved in the development of the MiFID II regulation and are currently involved in the work pertaining to the Level 2 text. Further we were involved in the review of the Official Report of the Swedish Government regarding MiFID and on a continuous basis we contribute to various working groups. Our department is also involved in shaping the Level 3 text by submitting questions and rationales to the FSAs who brings those to their respective working groups.
In our internal implementation project there are 26 identified initiatives and work streams for which we are providing legal expertise. We also manage Nasdaq’s relationship and contacts with authorities in all jurisdictions in which Nasdaq operates, and we coordinate and provide responses to various consultation papers from various rule makers and other organizations.
As Nasdaq operates in multiple jurisdictions, our team has relevant country specific and local expertise. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to any of our lawyers or contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
