Returning to Brexit: The next steps - Part two

September 14, 2020
Since March, the EU and the UK have continued negotiations notwithstanding the difficulties ensuing from the COVID 19 pandemic. The transition period stipulated in the Withdrawal Agreement ends on December 31, 2020 and unless an agreement is reached, the UK will as of January 1, 2021 no longer be part of the single market or the customs union.

In this webcast, we will be discussing what IP, employment and immigration law will look like as we navigate towards the end of the Brexit transition period and the prospect of a no-deal exit. We will also discuss what this could mean for multinational businesses and future UK/US trade. Please join Kate Ellis, Audrey Elliott, Gizem Erdogan, Mark Herlach and Hannah Wilkins in the second part of this series as we’ll be focusing on:

• how Brexit will impact the IP market as from the end of the transition period and what the immediate considerations for businesses will be

• the future of UK immigration and employment law and how this will impact US multinational businesses

• update on the US/UK trade deal and the likely shape of the deal in the run up to the US election and the end of the transition period
