The Brexit time bomb - Armageddon or business as usual?

The Brexit time bomb - Armageddon or business as usual?

By Paul Quain and Dónall Breen - 28 February 2019

On 14 February, we delivered a timely webinar on the implications of Brexit, a recording of which can be accessed here. We were jointed by our colleagues from around the world, Peter Susser (USA), Christoph Crisolli (Germany) and Guillaume Desmoulin (France) to help us untangle one of the biggest political upheavals in the hisotry of the European project. 

The webinar covered a variety of topics including:

  • visa and immigration rules
  • moving businesses and employees from the UK
  • data transfers
  • social security payments
  • choice of law clauses and litigating post Brexit
  • technicalities that may impact your business.

Of course, a week in Brexit negotiations is a long time. Since then it is looking far more likely that a delay or deal is more likely than a no-deal. Labour is reportedly backing a second referendum and the EU is understood to be offering some concessions beyond what was previously stated publicly.

We are staying abreast of the situation as it develops, fully appreciating that our clients need to have the most up to date information at their fingertips. Plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.

If you have any questions on this issue please don’t hesitate to contact Paul Quain or Dónall Breen.
