Putting everything into context:
- Whether the vote had been Remain or Exit, there would have inevitably been renegotiations with the EU. The current arrangements we have with the EU therefore would have changed whatever the outcome.
- The outline deal for the UK to leave the EU must be presented to the EU Parliament by 29 September 2018 unless a transition period is agreed in advance of that date.
- We are entering a new phase where there may be some uncertainty during 2018 and certain things will be different which may take a little time to get used to, but it will bring opportunities for businesses bold enough to be innovative and seize the challenge.
We have pulled together these Brexit pages to give some practical tips on what businesses should do to navigate through this challenging time from a commercial legal perspective and we have also produced some fast facts to try and simplify some of the processes. We anticipate that the changes will come in waves so we will be updating our advice as circumstances change. Now is the time to get the basic building blocks right as there may be more complicated changes on the horizon.
I hope you find these pages useful and if there is anything you would like to ask our team would be more than happy to meet up and discuss this with you.
