Arthur Cox is continuing to closely monitor Brexit developments, and to advise our clients in Ireland, the UK and further afield on the potential legal implications for their businesses. We are also mindful of the implications of Brexit for Northern Ireland and free movement of goods and people across the border. Together with our colleagues in our Belfast office, we have an all-island perspective on these issues.

For the time being, the manner in which the UK will leave the EU, and the shape of the future trading relationship between the UK and the EU, remains uncertain, in particular following the repeated rejection by the House of Commons of the draft Withdrawal Agreement. At present the latest date by which the UK will leave the EU is 31 January 2020.

We will issue updates and relevant briefings as further developments occur.

In the meantime, if you have any questions on Brexit, please get in touch with your usual Arthur Cox contact or any member of our Brexit team.
