The countdown to Brexit starts now

December 13, 2017

This episode was first broadcast as a webinar on 30 March 2017.

The UK is about to embark on a journey not previously taken by any other EU Member State.  The process for withdrawing from the EU is untested and there is much uncertainty about how it will run.  The UK now has two years to negotiate and reach an exit deal, unless all EU Member States unanimously agree to extend this deadline.

During this episode, members of our Brexit Taskforce will consider:

  • What next for the UK and the EU?
  • What are the key issues for negotiation - and will they be up for negotiation?
  • What should your business be doing now? 

This webinar took place: 30 March 2017. The webinar recording is available here:


Brexit - Lost In Transition

November 24, 2017
As the negotiations continue, a consensus is emerging that more time is needed. The negotiations are progressing slowly, a future trade agreement is yet to be discussed, and the Withdrawal Bill has been delayed.

Calls are growing for "transitional arrangements" to avoid a cliff edge and to provide certainty for business. But beyond knowing that one is desirable, does anyone know what a transition would or even could look like in practice? What are the options, how feasible are they legally and how difficult could they be to negotiate politically and in the time available?

Another issue that remains out there is the possible revocation of the UK's Article 50 notice. It would certainly be a challenge to get this done politically, but is it even legally possible?

This webinar took place: 10 November, 13:00 pm GMT. We demystified the options, and discussed what they mean for your business planning.
