The UK formally left the EU on 31 January 2020 and is due to end transitional arrangements on 31st December 2020.

This updated Legal Guide covers the key issues that will affect businesses in the UK and its trading partners over the coming months and into the future. We hope you will find it useful.

If you would like to discuss specific arrangements for support through the risks of the move to an uncertain future relationship, on how you might express the concerns of your business to governments, on dispute risks that may arise, or on any other questions or challenges you have, please do contact your regular Herbert Smith Freehills relationship contacts, or otherwise any of our experts listed here.

Note that sections of the Legal Guide updated prior to February 2020 are currently being updated to reflect the implications of the transition period and subsequent developments.
