Britain & The European Union: Brexit Resource Centre

The United Kingdom is scheduled to leave the European Union on 29 March 2019.

As part of the Brexit negotiations, the UK and the EU announced a conditional agreement for a 21-month “transition period” from 30 March 2019 until 31 December 2020, during which the United Kingdom will, in effect, remain in the EU single market and customs union. The transitional period is conditional upon the UK and the EU reaching an agreement governing the terms of the UK’s exit from the EU (i.e. “nothing is agreed until everything is agreed”).

Brexit brings significant legal and regulatory issues for corporations, financial institutions, and individuals. Morgan Lewis's team of lawyers in London, Europe, and internationally are advising clients on legal and regulatory developments and the anticipated impact of Brexit. Particular areas of focus include banking and finance, financial regulation, employment, immigration, data protection, tax, antitrust, litigation and arbitration.

Our Brexit Resource Centre will continue to be updated with further developments as they unfold. Please contact members of our Brexit team, or email Brexit@morganlewis.com if you have any questions.
