Brexit Checklist

Presented by ACC's International Legal Affairs Committee and Sponsored by Sidley Austin LLP
To the surprise of both the "Brexiteers" and the "Bremains", the people of the United Kingdom have now voted to leave the European Union.  The UK government, which was thrown into turmoil by the results of the vote, must now take steps to turn that vote into reality.

In this presentation we will talk about the choices the UK has to structure its new relationship with the EU -- be it European Economic Area, World Trade Organization, trade agreements, a customs union or WTO + trade agreements -- and specific issues that the different Brexit options would raise for in-house counsel.  These issues include loss of  “passporting” rights for UK companies, whether to relocate offices and/or staff from the UK to an EU member state and whether contract parties would/could seek to invoke a material change cause in order to "recut" a contractual deal.

Please join for this look into the Brexit "crystal ball" to see what the future holds for the UK and everyone who lives in or works with the UK.
