The referendum held in the U.K. on June 23, 2016, resulting in a vote for the U.K. to leave the European Union, or "Brexit", has been called one of the most significant European events of the post-war period and will have major global implications - political, legal and economic. In this seminar, attorneys from the international law firms of Herbert Smith Freehills and Kitahama Partners will discuss various aspects of the Brexit and how it could impact your business.
Among the topics to be discussed will be:
- Basic overview of the European Union
- Possible scenarios for a future EU-UK relationship
- Short-term and long-term Brexit consequences
- What businesses can do now to prepare for the Brexit
