Brexit is now only months away. The potential impact for businesses across the EU is significant. Critical issues include employee sourcing and retention, data transfers, supply chain logistics, as well as intellectual property considerations.

Whilst the final outcomes remains unclear, to help businesses prepare for the impacts of deal or no deal, we have gathered together expert speakers from Bird & Bird's London and Copenhagen offices to share their insights on important topics Nordic businesses should take into consideration. The event will be chaired by leading London Intellectual Property specialist Sally Shorthose, and we are also delighted to be joined by the British Chamber of Commerce Denmark's CEO, Gareth Garvey.

This event is aimed at leaders and decision makers from Nordic businesses from all sectors with interests and operations in the UK.

Practical information

A light breakfast and coffee/tea will be served. It is free to attend the event.

The event will be held at Sundkrogsgade 19, 2100 Copenhagen on Thursday 6 December 2018 at 08:30 – 10:30.
