BREXIT - Negotiations

Just over eight months ago, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union in a referendum whose outcome defied poll predictions and surprised millions on both sides of the Channel.

Now the ‘Article 50’ exit process and ensuing negotiations have begun, the shock of the result has worn off but many of the questions it threw up, remain. 

Given the complexity and importance of such an historic and unprecedented development in European politics, the lack of clear insight and certainty about the future is frustrating but not surprising. At such times, it is vital for both businesses and policy makers to remain calm, practical and focused on what is best for everyone in the long term, so that cool heads may prevail through the political turbulence.
