EY Law Brexit Conversation Guide – Legal risks created by Brexit and how to manage them


Brexit — disruption with open questions

It is understandable why many CEOs, general counsel and other members of the C-suite have found addressing Brexit difficult. The consequences of Brexit for businesses inside and outside of the UK are not yet clear, and the number of issues that we may see as a result of the UK leaving the European Union seems overwhelming. This is why businesses may show little enthusiasm for taking actions currently.
