Event description:

Are you doing business in or with the UK? Regardless of your opinion on the UK’s upcoming EU referendum, your business will need to prepare for the implications of different post-referendum scenarios, including the impact of a potential Brexit.


This seminar will offer a checklist for companies to prepare for a possible Brexit. During the session, Baker & McKenzie’s leading EU and trade practitioners, Ross Denton and Paul Johnson, will cover key questions every business must ask themselves, including:

  • Will I need an EU establishment to continue EU trade?
  • Are my main suppliers or customers based in non-EU countries, but ones which benefit from an EU-negotiated preferential trade deal?
  • How will my mobile workforce be affected by Brexit if they have to travel to or from the UK?
  • Could Brexit trigger force majeure contract clauses?
  • Will I have greater grant/subsidy opportunities post Brexit?

The presentation and Q&A session will be followed by a networking reception.
