Brexit and its impact on your business
The prospect of Brexit will dominate the UK’s political, legal and economic landscape over the coming years. Our Brexit Practice Group have produced and will continue to produce publications outlining the procedural and substantive implications of the referendum result and Brexit as events develop. Members of the firm have advised and continue to advise clients in a range of sectors on issues arising out of the referendum result. These include the effects of Brexit on M&A, financing transactions and other types of investment activity, its likely impact on the regulatory environment and on the cost of cross-border trade. We are also able to assist with contingency planning, lobbying efforts and the formulation of restructuring options.
For more detailed information on the exit process and the implications of Brexit on your business, please contact one of the key contacts in our Brexit Practice Group or your usual adviser at Slaughter and May.
