In this event, experts from Osborne Clarke will share and discuss what they know about the UK leaving European Union - and the implications for your business. This event will offer concrete steps that all businesses should take today to be well prepared, regardless of a "hard" or "soft" Brexit.
There will be an overview of the current state of negotiations, and a discussion of:
• the transition period that is proposed to run from 29 March 2019 to the end of 2020;
• what changes to commercial contracts might be needed to address Brexit-related risks; and
• the implications for employees and the free movement of people, data, IP rights and passporting.
We hope to make the event as interactive as possible, and invite you to submit your questions in advance to Michaela Berankova,
