Brexit & Beyond

Despite formally leaving the EU earlier this year, the UK is now coming to the end of the 11 month long agreed transition period, and will actually leave the EU on the 31 December 2020. So what will 1 January 2021 hold for businesses and individuals?
Will the UK manage to negotiate that trade deal which has been discussed and argued about for many months? What will be the shape of the deal? Or will it be a no deal?
That is yet to be seen, but we do know that with the ongoing uncertainty surrounding this, it is a challenging time for businesses of all sizes.

With a few short months to go and with the real possibility of the UK starting 2021 without a trade deal, businesses need to be practical and flexible, to ensure they are in the best shape for 2021.

At Shakespeare Martineau our team is committed to providing our clients with clear and practical advice tailored to their business and their personal matters. We are ready to guide and advise our clients, cutting through the endless detail and provide them with clarity helping them plan for the opportunities and challenges that Brexit continues to deliver.

Here on our hub we will keep you up to date with the latest news, articles, briefings, commentary and webinars concerning the legal implications of Brexit ensuring that you have all the information to drive your strategic thinking now and in the future.
