Brexit Briefings

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020 (“Brexit”). Under the provisions of the Withdrawal Agreement, the UK is currently in a ‘transition period’, initially, until 31 December 2020. During this time, the UK government will attempt to negotiate the terms of the future relationship between the UK and the EU. The terms and legal implications of the future relationship remain uncertain. We will continue to carefully observe the developments to update our briefings on key areas of business and industry, anticipating the consequences of the new relationship as a deal is negotiated.

We welcome your questions, please direct them to your usual MoFo contacts or email us at We work with clients on their contingency plans and assist with the implementation of important decisions. If you would like to discuss any Brexit-related matters with us, we are happy to do so.
