As the political negotiations between the UK and EU unfold, Kennedys is here to keep you up to date on the latest Brexit developments and what they mean for you and your business.
With the current Article 50 extension deadline of 31 October 2019 looming against a complex and uncertain political backdrop, and talks between the UK and EU continuing without any clear sign of a definitive outcome, the possibility of a no-deal Brexit remains at an all-time high.
Boris Johnson’s first Queen’s Speech delivered on Monday 14 October 2019 - dominated by Brexit-related legislation - included the Medicines and Medical Devices Bill (the Bill).
Following today's Queen's Speech, we have officially responded to some key domestic legislation relating Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill, and the Medicines and Medical Devices Bill.
In a week that is likely to be dominated by ongoing Brexit negotiations and timelines, we have today been provided with this Government’s priorities and legislative programme in the Queen’s Speech which took place this morning.
There is much speculation about the turbulence that might follow Brexit, whether on a deal or no-deal basis.
The target EU withdrawal date for the UK is presently 23:00 GMT on 31 October 2019. One hot topic for discussion is the consequences of Brexit on international dispute resolution. We focus here upon litigation and arbitration; the two core choices of forum, even where alternative forms of dispute resolution are attempted but have been unsuccessful.
Businesses must carefully consider the possible interruption and consequences of changes to environmental legislation and regulation that Brexit would bring. In the event of the UK leaving the European Union (EU) with a deal, there will be a transition period providing continuity during that time.
London is a well-established seat for international arbitration. This reflects London’s historical role in the development of commodities trading, insurance and shipping and the City’s status as a major international financial centre.
As the Conservative Party leadership contest plays out before us, the political mood around the country appears to be worsening. Our politics is becoming more polarised as Brexit reshapes the traditional left/right party lines. It presents unique tests for political incumbents and new challengers alike.
If no deal is struck or a hard Brexit achieved, it can be anticipated that, at least initially, there will be a degree of disruption as the borders try to cope with the new (and likely increased) procedures.
