Following the referendum on 23 June, the UK has decided to leave the EU. This decision will impact upon UK policy and legislation, and may mean you have a number of questions surrounding how these changes will affect your business.
The changes will be implemented slowly, meaning that there is time for you to set a strategic way forward for your business.
The UK won’t officially leave the EU for two years as there will be a negotiation period after we’ve provided notice under the Treaty on European Union (sometimes known as the Maastricht Treaty). We understand that you might be uncertain on how your business will be impacted, so our lawyers are here to provide legal advice on issues such as:
• Employment law
• Competition law
• Regulation of financial services
• Intellectual property
• Data protection
• Environment and climate change
Additionally, our business lawyers have provided answers to some frequently asked questions on this topic – see above for more details.
While it’s going to take some time to understand the full impact of the referendum result, there are a number of areas that businesses may want to start considering now. For help focusing on the areas that matter most, download and complete our Brexit checklist.
