Event: Sweet transition for hard Brexit – Preparing Financial Institutions in the EU

To help our financial institutions clients in the EU prepare for the significant possibility of a hard Brexit on 29 March, we are presenting a series of seminars and roundtables to consider what happens if the UK (i) leaves with no deal, or (ii) closes a deal in principle, but all legislation is not in place on Brexit day. With colleagues from across the EU and UK we will be looking at how governments and regulators in the EU, Italy, France, Germany, Luxemburg and the UK are trying to soften the hard Brexit effects.

Webinar: Brexit, what do EU think?

With just over a month to go until Brexit, a deal remains elusive. Despite moves in the UK Parliament to avoid a no-deal Brexit, that remains the default outcome unless a deal or an extension is agreed with the EU and approved by Parliament. Our webinar will be presented by our colleagues in various EU27 countries. They will be providing insights on how government and industry is preparing in their jurisdictions. We will also shine a spotlight on the recent case of Canary Wharf (BP4) T1 Limited and others v European Medicines Agency.
