Latest Brexit

Brexit has brought with it some confusion as to the legal and commercial implications for business and for individuals.  There will be gradual changes to many aspects of regulatory life, to the laws and regulations that govern trade and commerce, to compliance, to immigration and employment, to dispute resolution.  In addition to commercial uncertainty, there will also be opportunities.  In these pages, our legal and transactional experts have written about the effects of Brexit on each of their specialisms.  These articles will be added to and updated over time, so you may wish to revisit this site occasionally.  If you have queries about any aspects of Brexit, please either contact the relevant HCR expert or send your query to Nicolas Groffman in the first instance.
