Bird & Bird's Commercial team is delighted to have written Practical Law's 'Doing business in the UK' guide.

This Q&A gives an overview of key recent developments affecting doing business in UK (England and Wales) as well as an introduction to the legal system; foreign investment, including restrictions, currency regulations and incentives; and business vehicles and their relevant restrictions and liabilities. It also summarises the laws regulating employment relationships, including redundancies and mass layoffs, and provides short overviews on competition law; data protection; and product liability and safety. In addition, there are comprehensive summaries on taxation and tax residency; and intellectual property rights over patents, trade marks, registered and unregistered designs.
