Turning complexity into clarity

Practical Law + Westlaw Edge: A combination of expert Brexit insights with intuitive research tools

Navigating beyond Brexit

The transition period has ended. Many questions remain. The new body of retained EU law has now been created, the remaining withdrawal agreement provisions have come into operation, and the future relationship agreements (including the UK-EU trade and co-operation agreement) have started to apply on a provisional basis. Legal professionals will have to make sense of this for their clients while keeping track of the new regulatory framework as it develops.

Advise clients confidently and mitigate the high-impact risks surrounding the post transition period with the most current and high-quality insight possible.

With the unique combination of Practical Law and Westlaw Edge, you can get up to speed quickly and stay ahead of the game.

How Practical Law and Westlaw Edge together can prepare you for divergence from EU law

Example scenario:  A food producer is thinking of branching out into spirits, and has plans for a cider brandy distillery based in Somerset. They need to know what the regime on geographical indications is looking like now that the transition period ended on 31 December 2020 for UK brands; this was previously governed by a number of directly applicable EU regulations.

Separately, they are exploring setting up a distribution centre in the EU as a base for marketing their other products, and want to know more about establishing a company in France.
