In June 2016, the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU. The notice period required means that the actual British exit (or 'Brexit') date is unlikely to be before 2019. A negotiated exit is likely to involve a phased transitional approach lasting several years. Some of the immediate challenges for businesses will arise from the impact of Brexit on the free movement of goods, services and employees and the on-going protection of IP rights. Forward planning is, therefore, key.

Our Brexit resources include over 30 practice group and sector briefings and various videos. These can be accessed via the links below. We have a team of contacts who can discuss the subject directly with you and offer further guidance. If this would be helpful, please do get in touch with one of our team.
