Brexit Lawyers

The business community is now planning for the 31 October 2019, when it is expected that the UK will leave the EU. Withdrawal from the EU is likely to generate huge changes to our laws. Whether in financial regulation, employment law, immigration, or international trade law the impact will be widespread. But until Brexit has taken place, EU law and UK laws derived from the EU will continue to apply. 

Post-Brexit, membership of the EU could be replaced by other trading arrangements with EU members, which may to some extent replicate existing arrangements. What is achievable may not become apparent for several years and until then significant uncertainty will remain. 

Our Brexit team is advising clients on the changes which lie ahead.

Please contact a member of the team with any Brexit questions or concerns. 

Business Contracts

Leaving the EU will affect some of your existing contracts. It may affect future contracts you plan to sign. In preparation, you should be thinking about the following points.

To discuss these issues and for concise legal advice, please contact Stephen Sidkin.
