Entering into new commercial agreements during periods of economic or political uncertainty can give rise to unique challenges. As the UK negotiates its exit from the EU, we have highlighted below some Brexit related issues which parties may want to consider when contracting during this period. With contributions from lawyers in our IP, Dispute Resolution and Commercial groups, the tool flags a number of issues that have already been shown to be relevant. However, it isn't an exhaustive checklist and there may well be additional issues to consider depending on the precise nature of the agreement concerned and progress with the Brexit negotiations. As ever, we would advise parties to seek specific legal advice on the particular deal being entered into.
