Name: Contingency Planning for Businesses Impacted by Brexit
Date: May 1, 2018
Time: 7:30 AM - 9:30 AM CDT
Event Description:
The UK is scheduled to leave the EU in March 2019. A conditional agreement on the terms governing a transitional period from April 2018 to December 2020 has just been announced, but has to be formally ratified. As a consequence, companies doing business in the UK need to be making contingency plans for what happens in March 2019 (when the UK formally leaves the EU), what happens during the transitional period through December 2020, and what happens when the transitional period comes to an end.
Attorneys from Fredrikson & Byron’s International Practice and UK law firm Walker Morris will provide a general update on the Brexit process, the practical issues companies should start identifying and putting into place and potential business opportunities presented by this transition. 

​The program will address:
  1. Brexit process, possible outcomes and consequential changes to the regulatory environment across the UK and EU.
  2. What possible Brexit outcomes may mean for companies doing business with the UK and for business between the UK and the remaining EU states.
  3. Supply chain issues and how the customs, import and export process may be affected.
  4. Recommendations for dealing with data, intellectual property protection and employee immigration.
  5. Issues affecting regulated sectors, such as food and agricultural, financial services and medical/technology.
