Britain & The European Union: Brexit Resource Centre

On Wednesday, 29 March, 2017, British Prime Minister Theresa May officially triggered the beginning of the end of the UK’s European Union membership.

UK and EU negotiations have begun, with all parties representing different interests and involving a myriad of issues that have commercial and legal ramifications.

Brexit will have complex short and long-term legal implications regarding the UK and the EU itself across all practice areas.

Morgan Lewis is prepared for the difficulties and opportunities presented by the two years of transition until the UK is formally out of the EU. The firm has represented companies and institutions doing business in the UK and globally for more than three decades. Our Brexit team of lawyers have been advising clients on a variety of legal issues both before and after the decision, and are available to answer any questions clients may have over the coming months. Areas in which we specialise include finance, financial regulation, private equity, employment law, immigration law, data protection, structured finance, tax, antitrust, litigation, and arbitration.

The Brexit Resource Centre  provides guidance on the legal and business implications of the UK’s decision to leave the union. Check back often as this page will be updated with analysis of developments as they unfold over the coming months. Please contact members of our Brexit team, or email if you have any questions.
