The Brexit process seems to have been going nowhere fast for two years. But now, with a new prime minister and the increasing chance of a “no-deal” Brexit, it looks more and more likely that the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union will take place on October 31, 2019. The UK’s departure from the EU would be the first stage of a fundamental change in how the UK operates in the world and how businesses will need to operate in and with the UK. During this call, we will:
- Recap how we got to where we are today;
- Consider the options available to the UK and its Parliament before October 31, 2019;
- Reflect on the consequences of the UK leaving without a deal, including the impact on the financial services sector and on customs and tariffs;
- Examine the impact on the US/UK relationship, including the prospects of a trade deal and the importance of the Good Friday Agreement; and
- Summarize what we think will happen next.
This session is open to all and will be of particular interest to anyone who does business in the UK or the EU or has clients who do.
