The UK did not leave the EU on 29 March nor on 12 April, but will possibly exit on 31 October 2019 (or earlier if the Withdrawal Agreement is accepted, or later if another extension is agreed or not at all). The future is still unclear and businesses in the UK and the EU27 are now having to adjust their planning to new Brexit dates. The latest extension has neither removed nor diminished the risks and uncertainty but has at least provided some additional time. This time should be used wisely. Businesses should act now and finalise or bolster their contingency measures to make their operations are as “Brexit-proof” as possible. There are still legal actions possible and some only became practicable again as a result of the extension. A cross-border merger would again be possible to move entities or assets from the UK to the EU27 or the other way around. We'll discuss:
The current Brexit situation.
The possible legal measures that can be finalised until the new exit date.
What are the next steps for businesses to brace for Brexit.
Gain practical insights from our legal specialists on the evolving situation and prepare your business for Brexit, whatever the outcome is.
