The decision to leave the EU has inevitably caused an immediate economic shock around the world but with the decision now made the focus needs to turn to ensuring that businesses are given the best platform to understand the issues and maximise the opportunities that exit can bring.
What is the legal impact of the EU vote?
For the time being, very little. We expect the UK Government to serve notice to withdraw from the EU at some point in the near future. Prior to any exit, all European legislation will continue to be enforceable in the UK as it is now.
The extent to which our exit from the EU will impact on our legal position in the medium to long term remains to be seen as this depends on what terms we eventually agree with the EU (for example, whether we become a member of the European Economic Area (eg: Norway) or whether we negotiate separate trade agreements (e.g: Switzerland).
Our experts from across a range of our dedicated sectors are on hand to provide you with the necessary support and advice you need when we start to the leave the EU. Our comprehensive briefings can be found above they will be updated on a regular basis when more information is available on the approach being taken to withdraw from the EU.
