No Deal? No Brexit?

No Deal? No Brexit?


Last night’s vote that saw Parliament overwhelmingly reject the Government’s proposed deal with the EU rightly dominates the news agenda this morning.

The immediate call for a vote of no confidence in the Government adds to the political uncertainty.

We could endlessly debate the possibilities of what might happen, and indeed what should happen now. However, as the clock continues to countdown to 29 March, our main focus is ensuring that Burness Paull’s clients are as prepared as possible.

Many believe that last night’s vote brings us a step closer to a delayed Brexit or even no Brexit at all. A second referendum is still being actively discussed by many MPs.

However, prudent businesses across all sectors should be turbo-charging their ‘No deal’ planning now and we can help with this. We are advising clients across many business sectors on their Brexit contingencies - for examples of this click here.

If you missed any of our ‘Experts on Brexit’ series then you can watch the videos from industry leaders and read any of our Brexit blogs here.

To discuss your Brexit planning and the needs of your business please do not hesitate to get in touch with me, our General Counsel Lindsay Wallace or your usual Burness Paull contact.

Alongside Brexit planning, we continue to support clients in the running of their businesses to assist with opportunities that arise and challenges they face.

It’s important to remember during the next few months that the UK and Scotland remain open for business, and we are here to help you do the same.
