On March 29, the UK government triggered Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, formally initiating the UK’s exit from the European Union nine months after a narrow majority voted to leave in a referendum commonly referred to as Brexit.
Negotiating the UK’s withdrawal will take place over the next two years and will likely raise a range of complex business issues.
The Brexit Task Force at Morrison & Foerster is closely monitoring developments in the UK and elsewhere to help you better understand the implications of the referendum on your business. Led from our London office, the Brexit Task Force includes leading authorities from Morrison & Foerster’s European and global network who are tracking developments to help with your contingency planning.
In our latest MoFo Brexit Briefing, Sir Paul Jenkins and and Alistair Maughan consider the impact that the results from the UK General Election will have on the Brexit process.
An Insider’s Perspective: A Conversation With Sir Paul Jenkins QC
On 14 September, 2016, Paul Friedman, Morrison & Foerster’s managing partner for Europe, interviewed Sir Paul Jenkins QC. Until recently, Jenkins was the most senior lawyer to the British government and adviser to three consecutive prime ministers: Blair, Brown, and Cameron. In the interview, Jenkins discusses the inevitable uncertainties surrounding the negotiated exit of the UK from the EU, as well as the possible business opportunities.
On an ongoing and regular basis, we have issued a series of Brexit Briefings examining the legal implications with respect to competition, privacy and data security, trademark, intellectual property, restructuring, and tax issues, as well as the significance for emerging companies and the technology, media, and telecommunications sector.
