The British Chamber is pleased to welcome James Small for a lunch and roundtable on lessons from CETA for the Brexit negotiations. As a trade lawyer with 25 years’ experience across the EU/Canadian trade scene, 10 of which were spent in Brussels, a strong advocate and adviser on the CETA negotiations and now head of the North American trade advisory practice for Baker McKenzie, James is uniquely well positioned to outline the challenges of Brexit through the lens of the last major EU trade deal:
- what to watch for in the months ahead - tactics and pinch points in negotiations;
- sector by sector – which industries will find it hardest to make progress;
- the art of the achievable – separating political aspirations from trade realpolitik;
- outcomes and scenario planning – key “tells” in the negotiating postures of the EU and UK.
