Slaughter and May has a dedicated partner-led Brexit working group, which is chaired by Jeff Twentyman, and operates as a fully-coordinated, multidisciplinary service for clients and industry bodies. As part of its offering, the firm has significant involvement in client events and industry initiatives across numerous sectors (including financial services) in order to provide thought-leadership on the multitude of issues that are likely to arise from Brexit. Richard de Carle and Stephen Powell assisted with preparing a major publication by the firm on the WTO rules, which is now in its second edition. Powell is also the co-chair of a working group set up in 2017 by the Financial Markets Law Committee to consider the WTO regime. Competition partner Anna Lyle-Smythe is on the steering committee of the UK Legal Forum, and is also a key contributor to a number of competition law working groups examining the implications of Brexit on competition law and state aid. Ian Johnson, who heads up the restructuring and insolvency practice, is a member of the City of London Law Society and Law Society working groups, which are considering the insolvency aspects of Brexit. In terms of core legal advice to clients, in the financial services sector, a cross-practice team including Oliver Wareham, Craig Cleaver, Rob Sumroy and Nick Bonsall provides ongoing assistance to EU-headquartered general insurer Zurich Insurance Plc with its Brexit planning and associated regulatory issues; a major element of the work has centred around the client's application to the UK regulators, the PRA and FCA, for full third country authorisation of its UK branch post-Brexit. Elsewhere, other areas of sector expertise include aviation, energy, retail and telecoms. Sara Luder, Ben Kingsley, Jan Putnis, Jonathan Marks and William Turtle are other contacts.
