Brexit

Within: Brexit

Linklaters LLP operates across practice areas and jurisdictions to assist clients with navigating Brexit-related challenges and opportunities. In the financial services sector, the firm's depth and breadth of expertise puts it on a strong footing to advise a wide range of financial institutions on the impact of Brexit on corporate structures, reorganisation/restructuring options, financial regulatory issues (such as passporting and equivalence), jurisdiction analysis (for relocation/setting up) and employee-related issues, among others. Michael Kent, Peter Bevan and Harry Eddis are among the practitioners to note in this space. The firm also engages extensively with UK and EU trade bodies, as well as regulators; Deepak Sitlani and Mark Brown have spoken on a number of occasions at ISDA conferences. Aside from financial services, the firm advises clients from various other industries on the implications of Brexit, including retail, energy and automotive. Christopher Bellamy QC and Lucy Fergusson jointly lead the group, which also includes Nicole Kar, Charlotte Morgan and Matthew Weiniger QC.
