In-house legal teams will have undertaken a number of rounds of preparation for the implementation of a new relationship between the UK and the EU. Due to delays in the 'Brexit process’ some of the required steps to prepare your business may be outstanding and any existing plans may need to be reappraised in light of recent developments. Now is the time to refresh your plans and take necessary action. Our Brexit advisory team and legal project managers can help you get back on track and create a pathway to preparedness.
The UK Government is now committed to a December 31st 2020 deadline when the transition period will end. After this an as-yet undefined new trading relationship will regulate the relationship between the UK and the EU. In-house legal teams, already facing significant pressures as a result of COVID-19, now need to take steps to review and reappraise their existing plans in light of the new timescale.
Pinsent Masons is well-placed to deliver this support to legal teams through a combination of our dedicated legal project management function, our public policy team and over 2500 lawyers across our offices in the UK, EU and in key markets worldwide.
We recognise that the resources of legal teams are already stretched due to COVID-19. We will work with you to help get your team back 'on track', to support the identification of key risks, and to avoid wasted time 'dusting off' plans and getting them back into shape.
