Key Issues

Brexit and trade

The UK will experience a dramatic change in its trade relationships with the EU and other countries following Brexit. The biggest discussions will focus on the potential for a new UK/EU free trade agreement, the possibility of trading under WTO rules and entering into other third state agreements. Trade treaties are complex and negotiations are often lengthy. Businesses will need to assess the impact on their international sales and supply chains and ensure that their business priorities are communicated to the UK government.

Our global trade group has wide experience of trade issues including FTA negotiation, WTO law, customs and rules of origin, investment treaty disputes, trade barrier regulations and anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations.
