On 9th October, Gowling WLG produced a fairly comprehensive, and certainly useful and interesting, briefing intended to help businesses identify where their key risks are and what they should do.  While it focuses on UK businesses which trade with the risk of the EU, it also comments on trading with the rest of the world.  It comprises 5 sections –

  • What you should do? This is the key part. It explains how to map your supply chain and the key issues you need to address;
  • This explains the difference between a hard Brexit and a soft Brexit. It is important to understand the difference as a hard Brexit will introduce more change;
