On Friday 31 January 2020 the UK left the EU and entered a transition period. At 11pm on 31 December 2020, the transition period will end and with it the country’s membership of the single market and customs union. 

Post-Brexit, free movement will end and herald a new relationship. One that may be based upon a trade deal preserving tariff-free, quota-free trade in goods or one based on basic World Trade Organisation arrangements. It is all dependent on whether the UK can secure a deal with the EU.

People and their businesses in the UK face a challenging time as negotiations on many aspects of the Brexit agreement go right up to the wire. Trading with and doing business in the EU; travelling, migrating, setting up business subsidiaries; managing data; owning and maintaining assets, managing family relationships across the European and UK borders are still areas of uncertainty. 

JMW Solicitors have kept abreast of all these developments and compiled practical guidance and briefings from our experts across all specialisms on the questions our clients are asking in these volatile times. Over the coming period, as the Brexit trade deal is agreed, and the trading conditions clarify, JMW will bring you the latest information to help you analyse the risks and opportunities and prepare your strategic plans.
