DWF & Hume Brophy - What Brexit means for UK trade

Together with Hume Brophy, we invite you to a breakfast discussion on what Brexit means for UK trade, which is taking place on Wednesday, 14 September 2016 at our London office.

In the weeks and months since the United Kingdom's decision to leave the European Union, debate has raged on what this will mean for future UK trade. A new Prime Minister now resides in 10 Downing Street and her first major task will be to determine how Brexit is implemented and on what terms the UK will trade with the European Union and the rest of the world.

The discussion will bring together a hugely experienced panel drawn from government, the civil service, business and the legal profession.

Following the main panel session, we will be running a series of sector focussed breakout sessions focussing on the legal impact of Brexit for businesses within financial services, insurance and retail and food sectors.

We do hope you will be able to join us for what will be an informative discussion following the vote to leave and the practical implications for what this means for your business. If you have any queries please contact the events team
