This chapter deals with abuses committed in the trading of shares, with particular reference to insider dealing and market manipulation, and the laws intended to control them. The chapter considers forms of control to prevent market abuse under three key pieces of legislation: Regulation (EU) No 596/2014, the Criminal Justice Act 1993 and the Financial Services Act 2012. It looks at regulations governing disclosure to regulated markets and the fiduciary duty of directors, and offences involving insider dealing and creating a false market. The chapter analyses a particularly significant case: Percival v Wright [1902] 2 Ch 421.
