Gloucestershire businesses gain clarity at our Brexit workshop

28 February 2019

Gloucestershire businesses gained some clarity over their legal obligations post-Brexit at our workshop at Manor by the Lake on 26 February.

Over 30 county decision-makers and executives were briefed on the employment, commercial & data protection law implications of Brexit, at the workshop in Cheltenham.

Commercial lawyers from the firm and Wynne-Jones IP explained and answered audience questions over tricky topics such as commercial agreements, commercial property and intellectual property post-Brexit, along with the new rules for EEA workers in this country, and compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation after 29 March.

Guests from high-profile firms such as Brewin Dolphin, Cotteswold Dairy, Lillian Faithful Homes and Kohler Co, enjoyed networking and lunch after the briefing session.

Emma Smales, senior staff attorney at Kohler Co, commented; “It was thoroughly informative and pragmatic guide to issues that businesses need to address in the face of Brexit. I’ll certainly take away and implement some of the more practical elements discussed in the seminar.”

Partner Matthew Clayton, speaker and head of our employment law team, commented: “Politically there’s little certainty over what’s about to happen in the coming weeks, but fortunately the law provides some welcome clarity for businesses on the practical legal implications of Britain no longer being in the EU, when or indeed if Brexit happens. Knowing their obligations in terms of employment, commercial & data protection law in the possible scenarios gives businesses a little more confidence, at a time when this is in short supply.”
