Brexit Law - the way ahead

Leading businesses through Brexit and beyond, our Brexit Law pages provide key resources to help identify Brexit-related issues.

Our expert, multi-disciplinary teams are available to advise you on what the end of the transition period means for your business, whether in the UK, another EU country or outside the EU. A list of key contacts can be found here

What Brexit means for your business

After many months of protracted negotiations, a Brexit trade deal has been agreed.  At the time of the UK’s Brexit referendum in 2016, we described Brexit as “the biggest demerger in history”. While the switch to the new free trade agreement may lead to some disruption for businesses and individuals, our lawyers understand the legal and regulatory frameworks that clients will be required to operate in as that demerger becomes effective. We have the expertise, breadth of experience, advanced delivery solutions and geographic footprint to assist clients in understanding the risks and challenges and to make the most of the opportunities that the new relationship between the EU and the UK will offer. Our latest thinking will be updated and posted to this site.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with your usual Allen & Overy contact.
