The UK’s historic June 2016 decision to leave the European Union creates challenges and opportunities for all businesses, whether they are multinational companies or SMEs. BCLP has established a dedicated cross-office and cross-disciplinary Brexit team to help our clients to navigate what Brexit means for them. The team comprises experts in EU law, international trade, regulatory, financial services, corporate, employment law, data protection and tax.
Since the referendum, we have been working with clients across virtually every sector of the economy, including financial services, retail, energy, automotive, chemicals, manufacturing, media and telecommunications. We are working with our clients to help them to plan accordingly for Brexit, and to be prepared for the range of possible outcomes. We have also helped clients to frame their advocacy strategies, and we have good working relationships with government departments and regulators in the UK and with the EU institutions in Brussels.
We have created a series of publications and a webinar to make sure that you are up to date on the latest information. If you would like to know more or have any questions, please get in touch with the team.
