Brexit Outlook

Are you in, plan to have a presence in or have operations in England? We do – and if you do as well, we hope you’re up on the latest about England parting from the European Union (Brexit).

Last year, the vote to exit the EU passed and David Cameron, the Prime Minister, resigned. Theresa May took over as Prime Minister and she triggered the two year process of leaving the EU just last week on March 29th. She set out her negotiating goals in a letter to the EU council president Donald Tusk. The UK now has just under two years to negotiate its withdrawal and receive approval from the remaining 27 national parliaments in the EU. But no one really knows how the exit process will work – Article 50 was only created in late 2009 and it has never been used.

Here are links to informative BBC articles on Brexit and the 5 paragraphs that make up Article 50.
