Legal issues after brexit

This conference will advise SMEs, sole practitioners and startups of the legal implications of Brexit for international trading, where young agile businesses are particularly at risk

Post Brexit businesses cease to be protected by the EU courts and treaties. Businesses will face legal challenges that they may not be aware of when selling or working internationally; this is particularly important for countries with less robust laws concerning their economies. 

The Ministry of Justice will be facilitating this event, along with support from Professor Craig Barker, who brings a wealth of experience working in international law. This one day conference seeks to enlighten any attendees around the considerations for operating internationally, and will be invaluable for any SMEs in attendance.

  • 9:30 Arrival
