Mayer Brown Legal Update
The European Union agreed on December 15, 2017, to progress Brexit negotiations to the second phase, accepting a joint proposal from the United Kingdom and the European Commission as a framework for discussion. The proposal is captured in a joint report that EU and UK negotiators released on December 8, 2017. This Legal Update discusses what the report outlines on citizens’ rights, Ireland, and financial settlement. We also cover how various regions have reacted to the report, how free movement might be impacted, and what’s on the horizon.
