The business community is now planning for 31 December 2020.
Withdrawal from the EU is likely to generate significant changes to the way UK companies do business and to our laws. Whether in financial regulation, employment law, immigration, or international trade law the impact will be widespread. But until 31 December 2020 when Brexit has taken place, EU law and UK laws derived from the EU will continue to apply.
Post-Brexit, membership of the EU will 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.
For companies located in the EU27 countries that do business or have disputes resolved in London, we work collaboratively with law firms located in Europe and beyond. We advise on the issues that impact non-UK companies in relation to their UK interests post-Brexit.
Our Brexit team is advising clients on the changes which lie ahead.
