Potential consequences of Brexit

The Brexit negotiation process has started. Even if the final conditions are not very clear, it could be an advantage to consider the consequences of Brexit for your business now. Plesner provides a provisional overview of legal Brexit scenarios in a number of key areas.

The United Kingdom's withdrawal from the EU formally became a reality at the end of March and the negotiations on the conditions for Brexit have now started. The first outline of the development of the process during the next two years before the UK leaves the EU has begun to emerge. Status is that this is a period of uncertainty about the future legal landscape in terms of businesses' relations with the UK. 
Plesner's Brexit task force still finds that the final conditions for businesses with activities in the UK are so uncertain that businesses should generally await further clarification of the Brexit conditions.

However, in spite of the uncertainty, businesses will now benefit from considering how Brexit could affect their activities in various legal areas. Plesner's Brexit task force provides an overview of the potential legal scenarios in a number of key areas:
  • Commercial Contracts

  • M&A
  • Employment and Labour Law
  • Banking and Finance
  • Capital Markets
