What Brexit means for your business

There is never a dull moment on the winding road to Brexit. With the two-year Article 50 negotiation window ticking down, both the UK and the EU27 appear committed to push on with the negotiations despite on-going political twists and turns, and the constant flow of shocks from events in the real world.

Despite this uncertain and shifting environment, businesses operating in Europe have to continue to deliver on shareholder, employee, and customer expectations today.

Allen & Overy has spent many months exploring the possible legal consequences of Brexit in significant depth. We have analysed the potential impact in different sectors and in relation to different areas of law and have drawn up strategies for mitigating Brexit-related risk and taking advantage of Brexit-related opportunities for clients around the globe.

As we continue to monitor the situation, our expert, multi-disciplinary teams are ready to advise you at each stage on what Brexit means for your business, whether in the UK, another EU country or outside the EU. Our latest thinking will be updated and posted to this site.

If you have any questions, please email our Brexit team at A&OBrexitqueries@allenovery.com or get in touch with your usual Allen & Overy contact.
